Answer

Answer

Computed tomography (CT) scanning should be considered preoperatively to identify possible foci of metastasis. CT scanning can also be useful when following the patient in the future. Again, as with ultrasonography, there are no distinguishing characteristics that clearly identify a borderline ovarian tumor.
