This is clinically relevant, since overstaging will not result in undertreatment. The final reason for error is technical. Unless the area of interest is within the focal range of the 7 MHz transducer (2 to 5 cm) and is hit at a 90° angle distortion may occur. This is especially important just inside the rectal ampulla where the optimal 90° angle of incidence is difficult to achieve (see Fig. 28). Lymph Node Metastases (Figs. 65) Lymph nodes are best seen with the 7 MHz transducer. Normal lymph nodes less than 3 mm in diameter have an echo pattern similar to that of mesorectal fat and are not usually seen.
