Epithelial ovarian cancer is mostly a disease of the peritoneal surfaces of the abdomen. The disease often causes disseminated small volume implants with a consistency similar to that of normal tissue rather than a large identifiable tumour mass, usually with the exception of the pelvic ovarian tumour. Imaging for ovarian cancer is therefore problematic and especially peritoneal disease, nodal deposits and omental disease are difficult to demonstrate accurately.
