Abstract:   (4366 Views)
Myomas are the most common benign tumors observed in 20-25% of women in the reproductive age. The incidence of myoma increases with age occurring in about 30% of 40-60 yrs old women. Despite being benign, myomas are associated with high morbidity due to abnormal uterine bleeding and fertility complications. Thus, proper diagnosis and treatment of myoma at any age is essential. Clinical examination by a physician can partially diagnose myoma. For correct management of myoma, accurate diagnosis demonstrating location, size and type of myoma is necessary. This can only be achieved through medical imaging techniques. Today, many different medical imaging techniques are present including two- and three dimensional ultrasonography, Hysterosonography, Hysterosalpingography, CT-scan and MRI. In this study, various types of myomas, its diagnosis and latest methods of treatment are studied.
