Official Title

BR55 Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS) in Characterization of Ovarian Lesions

Eligibility Criteria

Ages Eligible for Study: Older than 18 Years
Sexes Eligible for Study: Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers: No
Inclusion Criteria:

Enroll a subject if he/she meets the following inclusion criteria: - Is at least 18 years of age; - Has an ovarian lesion that is visible and assessable with trans-vaginal ultrasound; - Is scheduled to undergo salpingo-oophorectomy for suspected ovarian cancer not earlier than 24 hours and not later than 30 days following BR55 administration; - Provides written Informed Consent and is willing to comply with protocol requirements.
Exclusion Criteria:
  1. Exclude a subject if the subject does not fulfill the inclusion criteria, or if any of the following conditions are observed: - Is a pregnant or lactating female.
