Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The sonograms of 102 hemorrhagic ovarian cysts (HOC) were reviewed to ascertain the full spectrum of sonographic findings as visualized by transvaginal sonography (TVS). The diagnoses, in 11 cases, were proven by surgery and the rest have undergone conservative follow-up until resolution (clinically and sonographically). The accurate diagnosis of HOCs by transabdominal sonography is quite difficult. The appearance of these cysts as visualized by TVS is described. We advise TVS as a better means for identification of HOG, thus decreasing the rate of diagnostic invasive procedures.
