Early detection of ovarian cancer with conventional and contrast-enhanced transvaginal sonography: recent advances and potential improvements.

Fleischer AC, Lyshchik A, Hirari M, Moore RD, Abramson RG, Fishman DA - J Oncol (2012)

Bottom Line: These include improved assessment of tumor morphology with transvaginal sonography (TVS), and detection and characterization of tumor neovascularity with transvaginal color Doppler sonography (TV-CDS) and contrast-enhanced transvaginal sonography (CE-TVS).This paper will discuss and illustrate these improvements and describe how they enhance detection of early-stage ovarian cancer.Our initial experience with parametric mapping of CE-TVS will also be mentioned.

ABSTRACT
Recently, there have been several major technical advances in the sonographic diagnosis of ovarian cancer in its early stages. These include improved assessment of tumor morphology with transvaginal sonography (TVS), and detection and characterization of tumor neovascularity with transvaginal color Doppler sonography (TV-CDS) and contrast-enhanced transvaginal sonography (CE-TVS). This paper will discuss and illustrate these improvements and describe how they enhance detection of early-stage ovarian cancer. Our initial experience with parametric mapping of CE-TVS will also be mentioned.

Mentions: Hirai has described the morphologic features on TVS associated with stage I ovarian cancer in a lay-screening population in Japan [1] (Figures 1, 2, and 3). In general, the stage IA ovarian cancers with normal CA-125 were small and had less solid components than stage IA cancers with elevated CA-125. Papillary excrescences typically occur in areas of epithelial neoplasia and can be seen borderline rather than frankly malignant lesions.
