Abstract

Metastasis to lymph nodes is an important determinant of survival in patients with gynecologic malignancies. Imaging plays a major role in the detection and differentiation of benign and malignant lymph nodes. This reflects in the staging of gynecologic cancers and management decisions. In this review, a brief outline of female pelvic nodal anatomy, pattern of spread, imaging features to predict nodal metastasis followed by current management strategies relevant to the radiologists will be discussed.
