Ravi Kumar.A | Syam Sunder Rao U.


Abstract: Background After the breast and uterine cancers the third most commonly encountered variety is the carcinoma of the ovaries. The diagnosis often ends up late and the prognosis is poor. This study sincerely puts in an effort to evaluate the ovarian cancer patterns encountered in the USG. The fellow practising radiologists would make a point to check and do the same if possible. Methods This study was done in the Department of Radiology, at Fathima Institute of Medical Sciences, Kadapa, Andhra Pradesh, This study was done from 2014 to 2016. Detailed personal history was taken. A total of thirty cases were studied and the results that were obtained were tabulated. All the statistical analysis was done using the latest SPSS software (2015). California. Results Based on ultra sound features, thirteen cases of benign tumours were cystic, one case was bilocular, three cases were multilocular, No cases of complex or solid masses were recorded in benign tumours in the study. Among the malignant tumours, two cases were cystic, one case was bilocular, four cases were multilocular, four cases were complex and two cases were solid in nature. Nine cases of cystic tumours showed wall thickness less than five mm and four cases of cystic masses showed wall thickness more than five mm. Conclusion The following study successfully shows the importance of USG in diagnosing the ovarian mass in its early stages. None of the patients were below fifty years so it makes absolute sense to at least check the malignancy as a routine in patients who has crossed menarche.
