Purpose:

This study will also compare tumor volume before and after neoadjuvant therapy using CT virtual proctoscopy, with the ultrasound exam as a comparison. Neoadjuvant therapy consists of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy is done before surgery to reduce the size of tumors.
