abstract

  • Our study showed that residual disease larger than 1 cm was present on early postoperative CT in almost half of the patients deemed to have optimally debulked disease at primary cytoreduction. Residual disease larger than 1 cm detected on early postoperative CT was associated with significant decreases in both progression-free and overall survival.
