The size and localization of the tumor are relatively easy to determin with ultrasonic equipment but characteristics of the tumor, particularly benign or maligmant, has not been clarified. In this paper, tomographic patterns of vorious solid (Cystoadenocarcinoma, Granulosa cell tumor and Dysgerminoma) and cystic (Cystoadenoma and Dermoid cyst) tumors are demonstrated.
