Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The Authors report the ovarian dermoid echopatterns observed in 189 cases. The ultrasonic key of the diagnosis is a particular 'pearly-gray' colour. The early diagnosis by USG gives the Gynecologist some advantages in: a) avoiding the operation in those cases of small mass b) making a pfammenstiel incision in the surgical operation c) trying a conservative surgery.
