I'm Truthfully Not Sure

I had a transvaginal ultrasound that picked up the tumors. From there it was CA125 and CT scan tht gave a total picture. It is important that they see both ovaries (sometimes they hide). Much depends on the radiologist who interprets the ultrasound. What kind did you have and what did it show? Are you still concerned if nothing came up? Ellen

My gyn said that the transvaginal sono is the best way to look at the ovaries.....Typically a ct scan can make the ovaries look larger than they really are, but the sono is pretty consise.
