How do healthcare providers diagnose peritoneal carcinomatosis?
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This test produces detailed images using a magnet, radio waves and a computer.
- Positron emission tomography (PET) scan. Healthcare providers inject a radioactive tracer into your body to detect early signs of cancer.
- Ultrasound. Ultrasounds use high-frequency soundwaves to create real-time pictures and videos of your internal organs or other tissues.
- Computed tomography (CT) scan. CT scans use a series of X-rays and a computer to create three-dimensional images of your soft tissues and bones.
