At the Fifth International Workshop on Peritoneal Surface Malignancy, in Milan, the consensus on preoperative investigations for peritoneal surface malignancy was obtained through the Delphi process. The results showed that 100% of the voters considered that contrast-enhanced multisliced CT was the fundamental imaging modality, whereas MRI, PET, laparoscopy and serum tumor markers were regarded as useful, but not fundamental investigational modalities.
