OBJECTIVE: To perform a systematic review of the literature on the accuracy of prediction models in the preoperative assessment of adnexal masses. DATA SOURCES: Studies were identified through the MEDLINE and EMBASE databases from inception to March 2008. The MEDLINE search was performed using the keywords [“ovarian neoplasms”[MeSH] NOT “therapeutics”[MeSH] AND “model”] and [“ovarian neoplasms”[MeSH] NOT “therapeutics”[MeSH] AND “prediction”]. The Embase search was performed using the keywords… Expand
Diagnostic Accuracy of the ADNEX Model for Ovarian Cancer at the 15% Cut-Off Value: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
This meta-analysis was stable with no obvious publication bias, and the ADNEX model at the 15% cut-off had high diagnostic accuracy in identifying ovarian cancer. Expand
Subjective assessment versus ultrasound models to diagnose ovarian cancer: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
A two-step strategy of simple rules with subjective assessment for inconclusive tumours yielded best results and matched test performance of expert ultrasound examiners for differentiating benign from malignant adnexal masses prior to surgery. Expand
Presurgical diagnosis of adnexal tumours using mathematical models and scoring systems: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
An evidence-based approach to the preoperative characterization of any adnexal mass should incorporate the use of IOTA Simple Rules or the LR2 model, particularly for women of reproductive age. Expand
Is Risk Malignancy Index a Useful Tool for Predicting Malignant Ovarian Masses in Developing Countries?
TLDR
RMI is a sensitive tool in predicting malignant adnexal masses and a cut-off of 200 may be suitable in developing countries for triaging and early referral to tertiary care centers. Expand
The Construction and Validation of a New Ovarian Malignancy Probability Score (OMPS) for Prediction of Ovarian Malignancy
TLDR
The authors' ovarian Malignancy Probability Score (OMPS) has constructed based on 80% of samples in a logistic regression model and has validated using the remainder of the cases and has calculated as follow. Expand
A nomogram for estimating the probability of ovarian cancer.
TLDR
A new statistical model for combining predictive information and a graphic decision support tool for calculating risk of malignancy is presented, which has a sensitivity and specificity of 90% and a specificity of 73%, and a clinically relevant nomogram is represented in the form of a nomogram. Expand
A Prospective Study to Evaluate the Predictivity of Risk Malignancy Index in Adnexal Masses
TLDR
Malignancy risk index is a method that has high sensitivity and specificity and can provide accurate predictions for the establishment of an appropriate surgical plan for pelvic masses or referral to tertiary centers. Expand
A prospective study to evaluate the risk malignancy index and its diagnostic implication in patients with suspected ovarian mass
TLDR
Simplicity and applicability of the method in the primary evaluation of patients with pelvic masses makes it a good option in daily clinical practice in non-specialized gynecologic departments and also in developing countries where access to a gynaecologist oncologist is limited. Expand
Preoperative identification of a suspicious adnexal mass: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Results suggest that 3D ultrasonography has both a higher sensitivity and specificity when compared to 2D ultrasound, and established morphological scoring systems also performed with respectableensitivity and specificity, each with equivalent diagnostic competence. Expand
The use of HE4 in the prediction of ovarian cancer in Asian women with a pelvic mass.
TLDR
ROMA showed similar sensitivity as CA125 but improved specificity and PPV, especially in premenopausal women, and may help predict if a pelvic mass is benign or malignant and facilitate subsequent management planning. Expand

Comparison of diagnostic usefulness of predictive models in preliminary differentiation of adnexal masses
TLDR
Prognostic values of the analyzed neural model are not optimal but seem to surpass logistic regression model in terms of the predictive possibilities, while three-layer perceptron network shows 13 features as significant predictors of malignancy. Expand
[Characteristics of ovarian tumors with color Doppler sonography: a comparison of predictive models derived from two academic centers data].
TLDR
Predictive models created with the use of multiple logistic regression analysis may be useful in preoperative discrimination of adnexal tumors, however, much better definition of diagnostic criteria, especially color Doppler score must be achieved before these models could be widely used in clinical practice. Expand
Prospective Evaluation of Logistic Regression Models for the Diagnosis of Ovarian Cancer
TLDR
Testing the accuracy of three logistic regression models in diagnosing malignancy in women with adnexal masses found that larger sample sizes that incorporate all types of ovarian tumors are necessary to design more accurate diagnostic models. Expand
Risk of malignancy index in preoperative evaluation of pelvic masses.
TLDR
RMI is a simple, easily applicable method in the primary evaluation of patients with adnexal masses of high risk of malignancy, resulting in timely referal to gynecological oncology centers for suitable surgical operations. Expand
Pre-operative evaluation of ovarian mass: risk of malignancy index.
TLDR
The risk of malignancy index (RMI) is a better diagnostic marker as compared to CA 125 alone because of its high specificity and sensitivity in differentiating ovarian cancer from ovarian benign lesions. Expand
Using logistic regression analysis in preliminary differential diagnosis of adnexal masses
TLDR
P predictive model is generated, which would allow to estimate the influence of analyzed parameters on predictive accuracy of differential diagnosis of adnexal masses and to evaluate prospectively diagnostic efficacy of the statistic model in the new set of patients. Expand
The risk of malignancy index in discrimination of adnexal masses
TLDR
The RMI is an appropriate method in diagnosing adnexal masses with high risk of malignancy and forwarding to gynecological oncology centers for suitable surgical operations. Expand
The risk-of-malignancy index to evaluate potential ovarian cancers in local hospitals.
TLDR
The risk-of-malignancy index strategy in a practical setting was showed to be able to centralize primary surgery for advanced ovarian cancer from local hospitals to a subspecialty unit and identified women with malignant pelvic masses efficiently. Expand

TLDR
The results confirmed that the experience of gynecological surgeons with ultrasound skills, outperforms the morphological indexing assessment of ovarian masses. Expand

TLDR
The data confirm the effectiveness of the RMI algorithm in clinical practice for the identification and subsequent referral to cancer centers of cases of potential ovarian malignancy and recommend its continued use. Expand
