CONCLUSIONS: Postmenopausal women with high/increasing ET are at increased risk of breast, ovarian and lung cancer. It is important that clinicians are aware of these risks as TVS is a common investigation. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

This article provides an evidence-based review of how these changes in diagnosis and management of ultrasound-detected abnormal ovarian lesions have occurred. Current recommended practices are summarized. The current literature on transvaginal screening for ovarian cancer also is reviewed and summarized.

Authors: Rezaeian M, Sedaghatkish A, Soltani M Abstract Although intraperitoneal chemotherapy (IPC) has been suggested as a promising method for the management of peritoneal dissemination (PD) of ovarian or colorectal cancers, the actual clinical use of this method has been restricted due to such problems as poor drug penetration into the tumor and high side effects. It is, therefore, necessary to develop new strategies to improve the efficacy of this approach. In the present work, a new strategy is proposed based on intraperitoneal (IP) injection of thermosensitive liposomal doxorubicin (TSL-Dox) with triggered re...

Authors: Kostakis EK, Gkioni LN, Macut D, Mastorakos G Abstract Menopause is the period of a woman's life that is characterized by the permanent cessation of menses associated to hormonal changes, of which the most important is the decrease of estrogen levels. Following menopause, the concentrations of circulating androgens decrease. However, increased concentrations of luteinizing hormone induce androgens secretion from the ovaries and presumably from the adrenal glands. Peripheral conversion of androgens results to the circulating hormonal androgen profile. Some pathological conditions are associated with greater...

CONCLUSION: The survival of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer enrolled in an ultrasound screening program is relatively poor and screening is not a viable alternative to preventive oophorectomy. PMID: 31500890 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsThe data suggest that feeling efficacious about managing one ’s Lynch syndrome and screening is related to positive interactions and communication with one’s family physician. While this is encouraging, future research should examine educating both family physicians and patients about current guidelines for Lynch syndrome gynecological screening recommend ations.

ConclusionsBefore the cancer patient pathway, the most transvaginal ultrasound ‐exposed women were significantly more likely to be diagnosed with early stage ovarian cancer compared to the least transvaginal ultrasound‐exposed. After the cancer patient pathway was implemented, the difference disappeared. This suggests that increased awareness and access to transvaginal ult rasound is useful for diagnosing early‐stage ovarian cancer.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewBoth conventional and novel approaches to early detection of ovarian cancer are reviewed in the context of new developments in our understanding of ovarian cancer biology.Recent FindingsWhile CA125 as a single value lacks adequate specificity or sensitivity for screening, large studies have shown that a 2-stage strategy which tracks CA125 change over time and prompts transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) for a small subset of women with abnormally rising biomarker values achieves adequate specificity and detects a higher fraction of early-stage disease. Sensitivity could clearly be improved in both blood t...

Transvaginal ultrasound and serum CA125 are routinely used for differential diagnosis of pelvic adnexal mass. Use of Human Epididymis 4 (HE4) was approved in the United States in 2011. However, there is scarcity of studies evaluating the additional value of HE4.

AbstractWith the development of theories and technologies in medical imaging, most of the tumors can be detected in the early stage. However, the nature of ovarian cysts lacks accurate judgement, leading to that many patients with benign nodules still need Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) biopsies or surgeries, increasing the physical pain and mental pressure of patients as well as unnecessary medical health care costs. Therefore, we present an image diagnosis system for classifying the ovarian cysts in color ultrasound images, which novelly applies the image features fused by both high-level features from deep learning networ...
