Abstract

Ultrasonography and gallium-67 citrate scanning are two relatively new noninvasive diagnostic aids that have proved useful in the evaluation of neoplastic and inflammatory processes. These two procedures have a complementary role rather than a competitive one in the diagnosis of infections and tumors. Both procedures can be used with mutual benefit and, as a consequence, improved accuracy in clinical diagnosis may be obtained. We consider this approach to be of value in the modern evaluation of patients with inflammatory and neoplastic pelvic processes, offering new possibilities for noninvasive diagnosis and management.
