Introduction to Gynecologic Cancer
One of the key aspects in the assessment of the patient with suspected or known gynecologic cancer is imaging. Upon patient presentation, it is often the next step in its management following a thorough history and detailed physical examination. The role of imaging is equally crucial during the preoperative evaluation as well as during the postoperative surveillance period for the documentation of clinical remission or suspected tumor relapse and/or metastasis.
