Abstract
Background: Ultrasound (US) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) both are most commonly used diagnosis techniques as well as to find the stage of cancer of ovaries. The studies related to comparison of these two methods diagnostic value are sparse in India.
Objectives: The current study was undertaken to compare the sensitivity of ultrasonography, color Doppler and MRI in diagnosing ovarian masses.
Methods: The present study involved 50 patients within the age group of 30 to 60 years of age were included. Data was collected using standard methods mentioned in the literature.
Results: The study compared the diagnostic value of ultrasonography analysis, Color Doppler ultrasonography and MRI in the prediction in cases. The diagnostic accuracy was 94%, 86% and 98% respectively.
Conclusion: The study results showed that the ovarian masses are most common in the age group of 30-40 years. The first choice can be given to ultrasonography in context of cost factor as it is relatively cheaper. However ultrasonography alone may not be sufficient so it is better to add CDS and ultrasonography together which has high diagnostic accuracy. However, MRI is the highest diagnostic accuracy when compared to ultrasonography and CDS. The study recommends further detailed studies in this area.
