Ovarian cancer can be a silent killer. Family history is the most significant risk factor for developing ovarian cancer, but nutritional, environmental and genetic factors also contribute to the disease. Ovarian cancer diagnosis and treatment are challenging for physicians, radiologists and other healthcare providers owing to a lack of effective screening tools and a vague presentation of disease symptoms. Although ovarian cancer is a common malignancy among women, it offers a poor prognosis for survival. Interprofessional communication and collaboration is essential to ensure optimal patient outcomes.


The goal of this continuing education program is to provide imaging technologists, laboratory professionals and pharmacists with an understanding of the clinical management of ovarian cancer, including examination techniques, biomarkers of disease progression and therapeutic options. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify risk factors for ovarian cancer as well as factors that affect disease prognosis
  • Describe imaging methods used for staging ovarian cancer and assessing the response to treatment
  • List surgical, radiation and drug-based options for the treatment of ovarian cancer

I get that these questions designed to really make you read the material, but some of them are down right tricky and I don't believe that should be the goal of the question.
