Diagnosis of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome on Doppler Based Resistive Index and Pulsatility Index
Background: To determine Doppler based mean
Pulsatility index and mean Resistive index in patient
diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome.
Methods: In this cross sectional study one
hundred and twenty patients with clinical diagnosis
of polycystic Ovary Syndrome, who underwent
through color transabdominal Doppler USG to
determine the Pulsatility index and Resistive index
of both uterine arteries were included.Each
sonographic examination included bilateral study of
uterine artery and then calculations of variables PI
and RI and adding to get their mean
Results: The mean pulsatility index and resistive
index of 120 patients (including both right and left
uterine arteries) was 3.89 + 0.76 and 0.93 + 0.10. Color
Doppler scan correctly diagnosed cases in 84.2%
Conclusion: Color Doppler pelvic scan can
correctly diagnose the cases of PCOS in majority of
the patients. The mean PI was high and lower RI of
uterine artery was observed in our study
