(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- PET and CT scans, which shows images of both functional and anatomical changes in the body, are useful for viewing ovarian cancer before any operations are done. Physicians can predict whether a mass is malignant, cancerous but stable, or benign using this method. "We found that PET/CT imaging with the radiotracer 18F-FDG gave us beneficial information about the ovarian cancer stage that helped gynecologists in their treatment planning," Majbritt Frost, research...
