Reuters Health -  24/03/2022 - Radiologists have developed a simplified ultrasound approach for assessing adnexal masses in women at average risk for ovarian cancer. They found that separating isolated lesions into a classic category (simple cyst, hemorrhagic cyst, endometrioma, or dermoid) versus a nonclassic category (anything else, including multilocular cysts, mixed cystic and solid lesions, and predominantly solid lesions) yields high sensitivity and specificity for ovarian cancer - on par with other more complex ultrasound risk-stratification systems. Pelvic ultrasound is the first-line imaging modality for assessing adnexal lesions, and existing risk-stratification systems can be complex and time-consuming to learn and use, the study team notes in Radiology. The classic-versus-nonclassic approach to isolated adnexal lesions "could be helpful to radiologists in a busy clinical practice so that they can more quickly assess a lesion and recommend manageme...
