Colour Doppler on Ultrasound scan?

Posted , 3 users are following.


I've been diagnosed as having a complex cyst in my left ovary. I was just wondering whether anyone has any information about colour Doppler scans and the correlation with sinister cysts? 

Just to mention, there was no flow through my cyst but I'm trying to reassure myself. I'm having my ovary removed the day after tomorrow and I've only just turned 24 :-(. 

Thanks in advance x

    Does not appear to have any correlation to a cyst being sinster just seems let them see it clearer.
