Role of ultrasound in the management of ovarian carcinoma.


The ultrasound findings of the pelvis, upper abdomen and peritoneal cavity were correlated with second-look laparotomy in 85 patients with Stage III or Stage IV ovarian carcinoma. High values of accuracy were obtained for the pelvis (90%) and liver (91%) but ultrasound was insensitive to peritoneal disease unless ascites was present.
