Introduction: Ovarian cancer is the second most common cancer in gynecology. The most important prognostic factor is the diagnosis of the cancer in early stages therefore, we tried to evaluate ultrasonography as a non invasive method in the work up ovarian masses.
Materials & Methods: The study was retrospective. It involved 100 patients with ovarian mass that had an abdominal ultrasonography 1 week before surgery in that center. All of 100 patients had laparoscopy. After the procedure, we compared pathology and sonography reports.
Results: Age of patient's ranged from 12-78 years. sonographic findings in benign tumors included, 80% benign, 14% malignant, 4% normal and 2% suspicious. There fore, the sensitivity of this method in benign tumors is 92%, specificity is 80% and accuracy is 0.85. Sonographic findings in malignant tumors included, 73% benign, 63.4% malignant, 2.4% normal, and 26.8% suspicious. Consequently, the sensitivity of abdominal sonography in malignant tumors is 63%, specificity is 80% and accuracy is 0.7.
Conclusion: Abdominal ultrasonography is very sensitive and specific in benign tumors. It also has good specificity and accuracy in malignant tumors as a result it can used as the first step in management of ovarian masses.
