Table 4 Ovarian ultrasound measurements in PCOS and control women

From: Predictive value of ovarian stroma measurement for cardiovascular risk in polycyctic ovary syndrome: a case control study

  Control PCOS  
  N = 12 N = 24 P-value
Ovarian Volume (cm 3 ) 4.98 ± 2.91 9.13 ± 3.98 P = <0.01a
Ovarian Area (cm 2 ) 41.3 ± 16.3 47.4 ± 17.4 P = 0.31
Stromal Volume (cm 3 ) 0.59 ± 0.66 11.4 ± 4.57 P = <0.001 a
Stromal Area (cm 2 ) 8.12 ± 5.46 13.9 ± 6.10 P = <0.01 a
S/A ratio 4.37 ± 1.58 7.49 ± 4.45 P = <0.05 a
  1. Values are mean ± SD;
  2. S/A ratio = ratio between the stromal and the total ovarian area
  3. a P < 0.001 (Student's t test) PCOS vs control group
