Comparison of Diagnostic Efficacy of Female Pelvic Masses with Ultrasonography and Computed Tomography

Ujaan Roy


Abstract: Gynecological pelvic masses have recently become more prevalent. However, the majority of women were unaware of pelvic masses until they were found during a routine gynaecological checkup. The main goal of the study is to see how well diagnostic imaging methods like computed tomography and ultrasonography help narrow down the list of possible diagnoses for patients who come in with abdominal pain or a mass, giving doctors the information they need to treat the patients properly. Methods: The study was conducted over a two-year period, from October 2020 to October 2022. Most of the 50 female patients in the study who went to the radiology department with lower abdomen pain and irregular periods were between the ages of 35 and 50. . All patients who received ultrasound examinations had any lumps that were deemed sonographically ambiguous or potentially malignant further examined using a CT scan. Results: Of the 50 masses discovered in 50 individuals, 40 were benign, 08 were malignant, and 2 had no real mass at all. Sonography and the final diagnosis did not agree well with the origin of 50 masses, although CT and the final diagnosis agreed quite well. In 30 (48%) cases, sonography was able to identify the mass's origin; in 32 (52%) cases, it was unable to do so. Sonography couldn't tell for sure in 12 cases of uterine masses whether the mass was a solid ovarian tumour or a pedunculated fibroid because it was hard to tell. Two masses that were sonographically questioned had unfavourable results. On a CT scan, one of these was the loops of feces-filled intestine that stood out on an ultrasound and looked like a solid mass. In 93% of the masses examined by CT scan, the origin could be identified. The one tumour that was mistakenly identified as an ovarian cancer was the one tumour that was of ovarian origin. Conclusion- Due to the outstanding soft tissue contrast and organ-specific information produced in the pelvis, CT is noticeably superior to US in every way in diagnosing pelvic masses.
