AbstractOBJECTIVE: The purpose of this article is to review the role of imaging in the management of patients with anal cancer. The relevant anatomy, imaging techniques, and interpretation of images of patients before and after therapy will be discussed. CONCLUSION: Anal carcinomas are uncommon but increasing in frequency. Radiologists must recognize typical patterns of disease at initial evaluation, posttherapy appearances, and when to suspect residual or recurrent disease to guide clinicians and achieve optimal patient outcome.
