The Role Of Doppler Ultrasound In The Management Of Adenxial Mass

Abstract

In controlled prospective study a 35 patient with adnexial masses were examined using vaginal Doppler sonography to measure the resistance index of tumor associated blood flow profiles preoperatively with follow up of patients postoperatively by histopathology.The result of study revealed 77%had benign tumor, 23% had malignant tumor, RI value had ranging from 0.4-0.9 and 0.1-0.32 for benign and malignant tumor respectively with a cut off value mean of 0.34. RI was low in malignant with no overlapping between benign and malignant cases.
