Utility of body computed tomography in the clinical follow-up of abdominal masses

Academic Article


  • The value of follow-up body computed tomography was assessed in 101 patients with a known or suspected abdominal or pelvic mass. Computed tomography proved to be a useful noninvasive technique for evaluating progression, regression, or recurrence of such masses after therapeutic intervention. Computed tomography provided new or unique clinical information in 87% of these patients; it was not helpful in 2% due to technical difficulty and was misleading in 4%. © Raven Press. New York.
