ABSTRACT

Objective: To present our experience of using HDliveFlow with the HDlive silhouette mode to assess malignant tumors of the uterine cervix.

Materials and methods: Five women with malignant tumors of the uterine cervix (one case each of malignant lymphoma, cervical cancer stage IIA, and three of cervical cancer stage IVb) were studied using HDliveFlow with the HDlive silhouette mode.

Results: In a case of malignant lymphoma of the cervix, HDliveFlow with the HDlive silhouette mode demonstrated a markedly hyper-vascularized uterus with numerous vessels radiating out from the periphery of the uterus to its center (radialvascular pattern). In four cases of advanced cervical cancer (one case each of stage IIA, and three of stage IVb), HDliveFlow with the HDlive silhouette mode revealed a central hyper-vascular tumor within the peripheral vascular-ring appearance of the cervix, and clearly demonstrated the configuration of the tumor.

Conclusion: HDliveFlow with the HDlive silhouette mode may provide useful information on the diagnosis of malignant tumors of the uterine cervix.

Keywords: Cervical cancer, HDliveFlow, HDlive silhouette mode, Malignant lymphoma, Uterine cervix.
