Abstract
Purpose 1. To identify the characteristics that suggests metastasis in pelvic lymph nodes. 2. To identify the location of lymph nodal metastases in primary and recurrent pelvic malignancies. 3. To study the relevance of nodal spread in tumor management. Materials and Methods A retrospective study was conducted in our department. A Dual slice CT scanner (Somatom emotion duo–Siemens) and a single slice CT scanner-Toshiba were used for the study. CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis was done with oral, rectal and IV contrast with 5mm slice thickness. 28 patients diagnosed with pelvic malignancies based on radiological and histo-pathological analysis were included in this study. • The number of patients studied-28 • Carcinoma cervix-14 • Carcinoma ovary-5 • Carcinoma rectum-7 • Carcinoma endometrium-1 • Carcinoma vulva-1
