Ultrasonographic Profile of Patients with ovarian tumors

Dr. J. Sandeep, Dr. S. M. Jyothi

Abstract :

Ovarian carcinoma is a “silent killer” and comprises a quarter of the gynecological malignancies even though most of the adnexal masses encountered in the day to day practice are benign. Numerous criteria can allow distinction between benign and malignant lesions. The study was conducted at department of radio diagnosis, Gandhi Medical College and General Hospital and its allied hospitals in Hyderabad from December, 2002 to may 2005. Study participants were patients of all age groups presenting with adnexal masses. Of the total masses studied 11(15%) were bilateral while the rest 59% (85%) were unilateral. Among the unilateral tumors 41 (58.57%) were right sided while 18 (25.71%) were on the left side. The Size of tumor ranged from 4.2 X 4cm to 30 X 18 cm. For Sonographically indeterminate masses MRI is useful for additional lesion characterization. Analysis of T1 W and T2 W signal intensities for benign appeå lesion with the addition of fat saturation for high signal on T1W sequences may lead to an exact diagnosis (or) a narrow differential. For cases considered suspicious by TVUS, more specific diagnosis by MRI may obviate the need for surgery (or) otherwise change management by identification of benign etiology
