    Abstract

    We present our experience of using the HDliveFlow silhouette mode with HDlive silhouette mode to diagnose sclerosing stromal tumor (SST) of the ovary. Two-dimensional (2D) sonography showed an echogenic solid tumor with some anechoic areas inside the mass. Two-dimensional power Doppler depicted peripheral vascularity with a few central vessels inside the mass. HDliveFlow clearly showed abundant peripheral vascularization with several penetrating vessels (scrubbing-brush appearance). The HDliveFlow silhouette mode with HDlive silhouette mode revealed numerous peripheral vessels with some penetrating vessels and a few cysts inside the mass. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was highly suggestive of SST. Laparoscopic right salpingo-oophorectomy was performed, and the histopathologic diagnosis was SST of the right ovary. The HDliveFlow silhouette mode with HDlive silhouette mode may facilitate the preoperative diagnosis of SST as an additional diagnostic tool along with conventional 2D power Doppler sonography.
