Abstract

BACKGROUND: Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) has become the main investigation of choice for staging of many cancers. AIM: The purpose of this pictorial review is to discuss the imaging appearances on CT of some of the more common cancers arising within the abdomen and pelvis and to describe their typical sites of local, nodal and haematogenous tumour spread. METHODS: Cancers arising from the stomach, pancreas, colon, kidney, ovary and prostate will be reviewed. RESULTS: Awareness of the characteristic sites of tumour spread is important to allow accurate identification of all sites of disease. CONCLUSION: This will clearly have an impact on both patient management and prognosis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 14 July 2011.
All research outputs
#11,593,295
of 13,047,681 outputs
Outputs from Insights Into Imaging
#348
of 407 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#110,171
of 129,314 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Insights Into Imaging
#5
of 8 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,047,681 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 407 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.1. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 129,314 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 8 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
