The aim of this review is to demonstrate the optimal use of modern imaging methods (CT, MRI and PET/CT) in the preoperative staging, therapeutic management and follow-up of gynecological cancer patients (neoplasm of cervix, uterus and ovary). We present an  overview of the advantages and limitations of modern imaging modalities that are complementary to ultrasound, which remains the first choice in gynecology. The review should be used as a guide for gynecologists and oncologists on how to use the methods effectively.

Key words: CT, MRI, PET/CT, cervical carcinoma, endometrial carcinoma, ovarian carcinoma
