Abstract

Introduction: Adnexal tumors are third common neoplasms in female reproductive ages and the fifth cause of death in women.

Objectives: The aim of the study was to evaluate sonography accuracy in discrimination between adnexal malignancies.

Patients and Methods: This is a retrospective study in women with adnexal masses. Sonography findings were compared with histopathology diagnoses.

Results: Around 67 masses were involved in the study and accuracy of sonography was 92%.

Conclusion: The accuracy of gray-scale and color Doppler sonography in discrimination between malignant and benign adnexal masses were high and proved to be valuable diagnostic tools.
