Abstract

Results of the preoperative MRI correlate well with the surgical PCI, postoperative resection status, and survival time. MRI might be a suitable technique for patient selection when considering peritonectomy and HIPEC. In our patients the outcome seems to correlate well with the extent of peritoneal carcinomatosis found by the preoperative MRI.
