Ultrasound plans cervical cancer surgery:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Colour flow Doppler ultrasound can spot blood flow in early invasive cervical cancer and can be used to plan effective surgery for the condition, according to Taiwanese researchers. Reporting in the November edition of the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, the National Taiwan University Hospital researchers performed hysterectomy and pelvic lymph node dissection on 104 women who had been assessed by ultrasound. They found that 58% of tumours had detectable blood flow which was linked to larger tumour size, deeper stromal invasion and lymph node metastasis, among other things.
