Vascular tumor thrombus has been proved to be closely related to the poor prognosis of rectal cance, of which the current gold standard for the diagnosis of is postoperative pathology. In this work, we explored the feasibility of spectral CT and DCE-MRI in quantitatively predicting vascular invasion of rectal cancer. Results showed that the arterial NIC combined with Ktrans can differentiate the vascular invasion from normal status more accurately. Therefore, spectral CT combined with DCE-MRI may serve as a feasible and non-invasive way in predicting vascular invasion of rectal cancer preoperatively, that is of great significance for clinical diagnosis.
