Welcome to the website of the Peritoneal Surface Oncology Group International (PSOGI). PSOGI is a collaboration of world–renowned experts on the treatment of peritoneal cancer. This organization was founded and is currently chaired by Paul Sugarbaker, oncological surgeon and Director of Center for Gastrointestinal Malignancies, MedStar Washington Hospital Center. PSOGI aims to improve the treatment and survival of peritoneal cancer patients by educating patients, by training physicians, by organizing meetings and by performing basic and clinical scientific research into peritoneal cancer and the different treatment modalities.
The role of the radiologist as an essential part of multidisciplinary management of patients with peritoneal metastases is increasingly recognised. In the recently released “Pictorial Essays on Peritoneal Metastases Imaging: CT, MRI and PET-CT” expert radiologists have gathered together an abundance of information that will help radiologists around the globe to increase their knowledge on this subject.
