The purpose of our study was to evaluate the utility of Star Map for diagnose of cystic ovarian tumors. 25 patients with pathologically proven ovarian tumors were included in this study. The regions of interest (ROIs) were manually drawn as big as it could be on Star map in areas corresponding to the non-enhancing area. The areas showed high signal intensity on T1WI of ovarian tumors also evaluated. Our results suggested that StarMap could be a helpful tool for diagnosis of ovarian tumors.
