ABSTRACT
Background: In recent past image guided fine needle aspiration cytology of ovarian masses is being used for the pre-operative diagnosis of neoplastic ovarian lesions, The imaging may be in the form of routinely performed ultrasonography and fine needle aspiration cytology is done from the solid component of lesion.
Material and Methods: A prospective study was conducted at our tertiary care center over the period of two years. The 32 patients with ovarian masses encountered. The sensitivity, specificity and diagnostic accuracy of FNAC was calculated. Pitfalls and limitations of cytological evaluation and histopathological diagnosis has been highlighted.
Results: The sensitivity of fine needle aspiration cytology in this study is 81.81%, Specificity is 95.23% and diagnostic accuracy is 90.60%.
Conclusion: The Ultrasonography guided FNAC is less invasive, economic, rapid diagnostic mode of early evaluation of benign and malignant ovarian tumors and helps in early management.
