Abstract

Reported are three cases of serous papillary cystoadenocarcinoma of the ovary with pleural and pulmonary calcified metastatic implants detected by computed tomography (CT), but not by chest X-ray. CT patterns of metastatic calcifications were considered because of the unexpected frequency of this finding (15.7%) and in view of a possible clinical use of CT in monitoring extraabdominal disease.
