Ovarian tumors are the second most common cause of gynecological malignancies in India. We undertook this study in 21 patients with clinical suspicion of ovarian neoplasm, all of whom were evaluated by Ultrasound(US) and Computed Tomography(CT). Each patient was evaluated for pelvic and extra pelvic disease. Sixteen of these patients underwent surgery while 5 were evaluated by fine needle aspiration biopsy. Nineteen of these finally proved to be primary ovarian tumors while 2 were non ovarian masses. Both these modalities had similar results for pelvic disease evaluation. CT proved to be superior for evaluating extra pelvic disease primarily because of its ability to detect omental/peritoneal deposits, gastrointestinal tract(GIT) involvement and liver deposits better than US. We recommend CT as the investigation of choice between these 2 modalities.
