AimTo elucidate the hemodynamics of the uterine artery myomas by use of Doppler ultrasound and biomagnetic measurements.

MethodTwenty-four women were included in the study. Sixteen of them were characterised with large myomas whereas 8 of them with small ones. Biomagnetic signals of uterine arteries myomas were recorded and analyzed with Fourier analysis. The biomagnetic signals were distributed according to spectral amplitudes as high 140–300 ft-√Hz, low 50–110 ft-√Hz and borderline 111–139 ft-√Hz. Uterine artery waveform measurements were evaluated by use of Pulsatility Index PI normal value PI < 1.45.

ResultsThere was a statistically significant difference between large and small myomas concerning the waveform amplitudes P < 0.0005 and the PI index P < 0.0005. Specifically, we noticed high biomagnetic amplitudes in most large myomas 93.75 % and low biomagnetic amplitudes in most small ones 87.5 %.

ConclusionIt is suggested that the biomagnetic recordings of uterine artery myomas could be a valuable modality in the estimation of the circulation of blood cells justifying the findings of Doppler velocimetry examination.
