The most commonly used imaging modality in patients with cancer is computed tomography (CT). Whether to evaluate primary tumor or metastases to the neck, chest, abdomen, or pelvis, oncologic body CT has become invaluable to medical, gynecologic, and radiation oncologists. CT is the principal tool used to stage tumor, assess response, and guide radiation therapy. This review provides a discussion of how we optimize oncologic CT to best meet the needs of the patient with cancer.
