Abstract

BackgroundMultidetector computed tomography MDCT has become the main investigation of choice for staging of many cancers.

AimThe purpose of this pictorial review is to discuss the imaging appearances on CT of some of the more common cancers arising within the abdomen and pelvis and to describe their typical sites of local, nodal and haematogenous tumour spread.

MethodsCancers arising from the stomach, pancreas, colon, kidney, ovary and prostate will be reviewed.

ResultsAwareness of the characteristic sites of tumour spread is important to allow accurate identification of all sites of disease.

ConclusionThis will clearly have an impact on both patient management and prognosis.
