Single-detector spiral CT has low sensitivity for detecting peritoneal implants and local invasion from gynecologic cancers. Multidetector CT (MDCT) with dual-phase technique and three-dimensional (3D) volume display has the potential to increase the sensitivity of CT by improving disease detection during staging and follow-up. In this article, the technique and potential advantages of dualphase imaging and 3D reconstruction with MDCT for gynecologic cancers is discussed and illustrated.
