Abstract

The potential roles of fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography imaging in ovarian cancer include noninvasive characterization of an ovarian mass, staging, and treatment planning. This article assesses these roles for predicting and monitoring response to treatment, restaging, and early diagnosis of recurrence.
