Abstract
Introduction: Adnexal masses are considered to be one of the most common findings that have been encountered in routine gynaecological examination. And ultrasonography solely stayed as the most commonly implemented imaging modality to identify benign from malignant adnexal masses. The aim of the current study was to determine the accuracy of transvaginal ultrasonography (TVUS) in diagnosis of adnexal masses.
Materials and Methodology: This study was adopted to be conducted as a prospective study where in 56 female patients were included in the study who were containing 60 adnexal masses. The proposed study was rendered to be around 6 months. And all the study participants were provided their informed consent for carrying out and wilful participation in this study. P value less than 0.05 was considered as statistically significant.
Results: Over 47(78%) masses reported in some patients were observed to be benign and 13(22%) were proved to be malignant. The mean age of the patients ranged from 22-65 years and the mean age in those benign group ranged between 42.7±10.2 and those in malignant observed to be 51.2±12.6 and the p – value observed to be ranged less than 0.001.
Conclusion: Ultrasound is recommended to be a very useful highly diagnostic and a reliable modality with good sensitivity.
