OBJECTIVE To determine the value of risk of malignancy index in detection of ovarian cancer and referral of adnexal masses. MATERIAL AND METHOD Patients scheduled for surgery due to adnexal mass between May 2008 and August 2009 were prospectively included in the study. Risk of malignancy index (RMI) was calculated for each patient with a published formula (RMI=Ultrasonic score X menopausal status X Ca-125 (IU/ml) level). RMI >200 was accepted as positive for malignancy and the sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
