Purpose of the guideline: Colorectal cancer is the most common malignant tumor in the world. Statistics from the International Cancer Research Center show that colorectal cancer ranks the third in global cancer incidence rate and the second in mortality rate. Domestically, these two indicators are ranked third and fifth respectively. The treatment of colorectal cancer, especially rectal cancer, is based on the rapid development of imaging technology, whether surgical treatment or neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy, imaging evaluation has become an important basis for the formulation of treatment plans. But the imaging results of reading needs a large number of experienced radiologists to complete, will cause uneven distribution of shortages of personnel and the imaging results of delays and bias, so the artificial intelligence technology combined with imaging, independent research and development based on artificial intelligence platform, automatic recognition of colorectal cancer staging practitioner's work aims to partly replace image, achieve rapid and accurate identification of colorectal cancer staging.
