Ovarian cancer is responsible for the largest proportion of deaths among patients with gynecologic cancer. This paper discusses fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) in the imaging of ovarian cancer. We discuss and demonstrate how FDG PET/CT can be used to appropriately guide clinical management decisions in patients with ovarian cancer. In particular, FDG PET/CT shows great promise for the preoperative evaluation of women with primary ovarian cancer and for subsequent postoperative assessment for recurrence.
