Role of Ultrasonography in Evaluation of Ovarian Lesions and Correlation with Histopathological Findings

Dr. K. Hari Chandana | Dr. Akanksh Chokkapu


Abstract: Background: Ovarian lesions are the most common pathology in gynaecology. They present with pelvic pain, menstrual abnormalities. As a primary imaging modality, ultrasonography can provide diagnostic information for evaluating ovarian masses. This study was to see the morphological characteristics of ovarian masses by USG and correlate with histopathological findings. Doppler US may allow ovarian masses to be diagnosed as benign or malignant with even greater confidence. Materials and methods: The total patients referred to the Department of Radiodiagnosis, Gayatri vidya parishad institute of health care and medical technology, Visakhapatnam with clinically suspected or diagnosed with ovarian lesions in a period from January 2023 to January 2024 were included in the study. All the patients were subjected to transabdominal sonography with full bladder technique using 3.5 - 5.5 MHz curvilinear transducer and 10 MHz linear transducer. TVS was performed whenever required to obtain additional findings. Histopathological findings were correlated with the findings on sonography. Result: A total of 46 patients with clinically suspected ovarian pathology were examined by ultrasound and histopathological comparison was done. Out of 39 patients are with benign lesions, 37 patients were correctly diagnosed on ultrasonography (94%). Out of total 9 patient with malignant tumours 7 (87%) patients were correctly diagnosed on ultrasonography. Conclusion: Ovarian masses, ranging from benign cysts to malignant tumours, present complex diagnostic challenges in women's healthcare. The present study evaluates ovarian mass by ultrasonography considering histopathological examination of post-operative specimen as gold standard. Diagnostic accuracy increased when USG along with Doppler is combined for evaluation of morphological characteristics of ovarian lesions. USG can be used even by a basic examiner to differentiate benign and malignant ovarian tumour which helps us in making decision regarding further management.
