Abstract

Epithelial tumors are the most common type of ovarian tumors (Table 1). They are primarily cystic and, if malignant, are associated with solid components. Papillary projections are a distinctive feature of epithelial tumors. Profuse papillary projections are highly suggestive of borderline malignant or malignant epithelial tumors. In this chapter, we review and discuss US, CT, and MRI features of the spectrum of epithelial ovarian tumors, which are classi fied into six categories: serous, mucinous, endometrioid, clear cell, Brenner, and undifferentiated tumors. Furthermore, we can indicate a speci fic diagnosis or allow substantial narrowing of the differential diagnosis. Epithelial tumors are the most common histopathologic type of ovarian tumor, comprising about 60% of all ovarian tumors. They are more common in older women and the proportion of malignancy increases with age. The age range for the peak frequency in malignant epithelial tumors is 40-70 years. Epithelial tumors include serous, mucinous, endometrioid, clear cell, Brenner, and undifferentiated tumors. The two most common subtypes of epithelial tumors are serous and mucinous tumor.
