Published by Fayed
Ovarian cancer is not only the commonest but also the most lethal gynaecological malignancy,
partly because the majority of patients present with advanced disease. Nevertheless, the
management of patients with ovarian neoplasms has changed substantially recently, with
improved survival due to better screening strategies, major advances in chemotherapy and the
constantly evolving role of surgery.
Central to these advances has been the development and application of imaging in
diagnosis, staging and follow-up. All forms of imaging play a critical role not only in the dayto-
day management of the patient but also in the development of future strategies. This
volume provides a detailed review of all relevant imaging modalities and treatment options,
enhancing understanding of the role of imaging for all involved in patient care.
