High-resolution CT is the gold standard diagnostic imaging study for staging of gastric malignancies. Cinematic rendering creates a photorealistic evaluation using the standard high-resolution CT volumetric data set. This novel display method offers unique possibilities for the evaluation of gastric masses. Here we present further observations of the role of cinematic rendering in the evaluation of gastric masses at a large tertiary care center. We offer three valuable teaching points for the application of the cinematic rendering for gastric masses with several case examples for each teaching point, discuss potential limitations of cinematic rendering, and review future directions for cinematic rendering in this setting.
