Estimated Enrollment: 50
Study Start Date: April 2007
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2008
Detailed Description:
Staging of ovarian cancer can best be performed with CT or MRI compared to ultrasound. Studies have shown an increase in pos. predictive value by adding contrast i.v. to the MR-examination protocol. We compare staging of ovarian cancer by 1.MRI without contrast (standard method) to 2.MRI with contrast agent i.v. (new method)in the same patient. Golden standard are findings at operation.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • suspicion of ovarian cancer

Exclusion Criteria:
