Objective: The objective of this study was to utilize computed tomographic peritoneography (CTP) to assess distribution prior to intraperitoneal chemotherapy for advanced müllerian cancer. Methods: Nineteen patients were submitted to CTP. A novel 6-point peritoneal distribution index was developed and applied to the patients prospectively. Results: The median peritoneal distribution index was 6 (range, 4-6). The most common region for incomplete peritoneal distribution correlated to the right subphrenic space. Conclusion: Further studies are needed to determine the impact of inadequate distribution on recurrence and survival.
