BACKGROUND Positron emission tomography and computed tomography (PET/CT) have a potential role in detecting and locating recurrent ovarian cancer. Precise tumor location during surgical treatment is often difficult, owing to limited tumor size and post-surgical anatomic modifications. The surgical gamma probe, which has become increasing popular in recent years with the development of sentinel node mapping, may improve tumor detection and facilitate resection of occult metastases.
