MRI in Ovarian Cancer (MROC)

The aim of this study is to evaluate the possibility of multi-parameter MRI providing an improved radiological assessment for the classification and delineation of the extent of disease for patients with suspected ovarian cancer compared to standard of care CT assessment, potentially facilitating a more accurate decision on patient management by the MDT.  The study also assesses which imaging modality is most cost-effective in this situation.
