Dr. Pradeep Kumar Nayak, Dr. Nidhi Rani
The aim of this study is to compare the diagnostic value of trans abdominal ultrasonography (TAUS) and computed tomography (CT) in evaluation of suspicious ovarian masses whether being malignant or not former to surgical intervention This will help to a greater degree, in choice of type of surgery either conservative or radical.
The study was planned in the Department of Gynecology and Department of Radiology in Katihar medical college and Hospitals. The data from the 100patients were collected and presented as below. All patients underwent abdominal Ultrasonography and CT scan with determination of the ovarian mass characteristics.
In our study there were significant differences in the two methods i.e USG & CT. CT is showing more advantages regarding tumor localization, characterization. Hence CT can be advised if the unusual abnormalities were observed in routine USG scan inthe diagnosis of ovarian masses.
