Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the detectability of the gonadal vein of transposed ovaries in patients with uterine cervical cancer on MDCT. CONCLUSION. Gonadal veins and surgical clips of transposed ovaries can be shown with high consistency on MDCT. Tracking the gonadal veins and detecting the surgical clips may prevent the transposed ovaries from being misinterpreted as peritoneal implants.
