Lymph Node Disease of the Abdomen and Pelvis

  • Janet E. Husband

Abstract

CT can demonstrate lymphadenopathy not only in those sites opacified at lymphography but also in those areas which are inaccessible, for example, the internal iliac and mesenteric nodes, and those in the porta hepatis and the retrocrural space. In this chapter, the CT findings in lymph node disease are described and the relationship of CT to lymphography in different tumour types is discussed.
