Adnexal Tumors by Three-dimensional Ultrasound
Pp. 335-344 (10)
Juan Luis Alcazar
Adnexal masses constitute a common clinical practice. Accurate diagnosis is
essential for optimal management. Ultrasound is considered as first-line imaging
technique for differential diagnosis between benign and malignant adnexal tumors.
However, limitations still exist. New technologies may provide additional information.
Three-dimensional ultrasound is a relatively new technique that is being increasingly
used in gynecological sonography. In this chapter current knowledge about using threedimensional
ultrasound for discriminating benign from malignant adnexal tumors will
be reviewed and discussed.
