Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:16th Nov 2010
The aim of the study is to assess whole body diffusion weighted imaging (WB-DWI) as a non-invasive method, in patients with confirmed ovarian cancer in the presence of peritoneal metastases. This is to assess which of the two treatments (primary debulking surgery followed chemotherapy versus platinum-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by interval debulking surgery, followed in turn by chemotherapy) is the best option for a particular type of patient.
