Early diagnosis of ovarian torsion by color Doppler ultrasonography
NLM Title Abbreviation
Fertility and sterility
Ovarian torsion is often difficult to diagnose because of the nonspecific nature of the clinical findings. We report on the use of color Doppler ultrasonography in diagnosing early ovarian torsion. This technique provides a highly specific finding, the absence of blood flow to the ovary, that greatly facilitates the diagnosis of ovarian torsion.
