  • 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… CONTINUE READING
