434 Background: WDAA with peritoneal dissemination (PD) is a rare disease with a prognosis related to the ability to perform adequate cytoreductive surgery (CRS) with cytoreductive scores of 0 or 1 (CC0 or CC1) followed by HIPEC. Diagnostic imaging is an important aspect of post-operative surveillance. Often, surveillance imaging follows metastatic colon cancer guidelines with frequent CT scans performed during the first 5 years after resection (every 3 months for 2 years, then every 6 months… CONTINUE READING
