Aim: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the sonographic morphology of pelvic masses and to correlate with the histopathological diagnosis of the patients who underwent surgical intervention.
Methods: This observational study was conducted in the Department of Radiology of JJM Medical College, Davangere Karnataka, India for a period of 1.5 years. 100 patients with complaints suggestive of a pelvic mass were included in this study. The final diagnosis was correlated with histopathological diagnosis. The histopathological diagnosis was considered as the final diagnosis.
Results: USG scan was performed in 100 female patients who presented with history, symptoms, and signs of a pelvic mass. Majority of the patients were in the age group of 40-50 years with mean age of 34.6 years. The minimum number was in the age group of below 20 and below 60 years. The most common chief complaint of female patients enrolled in our study was pain in pelvic cavity 35 (35%) followed by pain and palpable mass 16 (16%). Menstrual irregularity, menorrhagia, post-menopausal bleeding, infertility, and amenorrhea were the other less common complaints in the female patients of our study.
Conclusion: USG is the most commonly preferred imaging tool to evaluate gynaecological masses. It is important to differentiate gynaecological and non-gynaecological masses on sonography for accurate management of the patient.
