To evaluate the role of ultrasound scoring system by Alcazar in differentiating benign and malignant adnexal masses.
This is a prospective cohort study done from September 2013 to august 2015 on 19 patients with adnexal mass presented to the department of obstetrics and gynaecology, king George hospital, Visakhapatnam. Ultrasonography with colour Doppler was done in these cases. Alcazar score was calculated and compared with post-operative histopathology report.
Alcazar scoring system could identify 8 out of 9 malignant adnexal masses and 9 out of 10 benign adnexal masses. Ultrasonography and colour Doppler score by Alcazar was able to differentiate benign and malignant adnexal masses.
Alcazar scoring system by using ultrasonography and colour Doppler is able to differentiate benign and malignant adnexal masses.
