From: Adequacy of ovarian diathermy under ultrasound control: an experimental model

  Right ovary (SD) Left ovary (SD)
Volume at ultrasound (cm3) 27.79 (12.62)a 19.51 (6.21)b
Volume after slaughter (cm3) 10.27 (6.3) 11.45 (4.8)
Volume after formalin (cm3) 8.25 (5.75) 8.03 (5.18)

  1. There were 11 ovaries of each side at the day of the procedure (ultrasound) and 10 ovaries of each side after slaughter. Volume at ultrasound was statistically different from the other two volumes measured (ap = 0.003; bp < 0.001).
