To investigate the CT manifestations and MRI diagnosis of ovarian cystic adenofibroma, and to understand its practical value, fifty patients with ovarian cystic adenofibroma who underwent treatment in our hospital from January 2022 to January 2023 were selected. The pathological and CT data of the patients were analyzed to understand the characteristics of CT use in the treatment of this disease. The results showed that all 50 patients had fibromas, with 43 on one side and 7 on both sides. Among them, there were 21 cases on the left, 22 cases on the right[1], and 7 cases of upward invasion into the lower abdomen. The diameter of the tumor is 1.8-13cm, with an average of (1.69 ± 0.35) cm. The tumors are either regular or irregular oval-shaped, with most of the boundaries being clear. Ovarian cystic adenofibroma is mostly solid, and in diagnosis, it is easily limited by relevant conditions to accurately determine the patient's disease situation. However, by analyzing the patient's actual medical history and comparing it with CT results, the effectiveness of CT diagnosis can be improved, and the quality and efficiency of the patient's disease can be improved too. Ovarian cystic adenofibroma can be diagnosed based on CT findings to determine the tumor location, nature, size, etc., with high accuracy. However, the diagnosis should also be based on the examination results as the gold standard.
