Laparoscopic ultrasound is initially developed to facilitate surgery for hepatobiliary and pancreatic cancers. With the advancement of laparoscopic surgery, laparoscopic ultrasound has been incorporated into laparoscopic surgery in order to combat against the limitation of laparoscopic surgery. In the management of gynecological malignancy, its role is mainly on the assessment of lymph nodes.
