Ovarian cancer mimics: how to avoid being fooled by extraovarian pelvic masses ABDOMINAL RADIOLOGY Masch, W. R., Kamaya, A., Wasnik, A. P., Maturen, K. E. 2016; 41 (4): 783-793


In our clinical experience, pelvic masses from a variety of anatomic sites may be misdiagnosed as ovarian cancer.

However, radiologists can better serve patients with an analytic approach to the anatomic and tissue features of pelvic masses. We review a range of ovarian cancer mimics and illustrate the radiologic reasoning enabling correct diagnosis.
