In brief: Need tissue

It can detect a mass but the definitive diagnosis is done by looking at the tissue either taken by biopsy or surgery.

In brief: Can help

Ct scans detect abnormalities in tissues but do not detect cancer per se.
A ct scan may detect a mass in the ovary, on an enlarged ovary that may suggest cancer. Definitive diagnosis of cancer requires removal of the mass or taking a biopsy of the mass and examination by a pathologist.
