TO EVALUATE THE SONOGRAPHIC MORPHOLOGY OF PELVIC MASSES AND TO CORRELATE WITH THE HISTOPATHOLOGICAL DIAGNOSIS OF THE PATIENTS WHO UNDERWENT SURGICAL INTERVENTION
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
Methods: A cross-sectional prospective study was conducted in the Department of Radiology
for the period of three years. 200 patients with complaints suggestive of a pelvic mass include in
this study. The final diagnosis was correlated with histopathological diagnosis. The
cytohistopathology diagnosis was considered as the final diagnosis.
Results: USG scan was performed in 200 female patients who presented with history,
symptoms, and signs of the pelvic mass. Majority of the patients were in the age group of 40-50
years with mean age of 35.7 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 70 (35%) followed by pain and palpable mass 34 (17%). Menstrual
irregularity, menorrhagia, post-menopausal bleeding, infertility, and amenorrhea were the other
less common complaints in the female patients of our study.
