New Method to Assess the Risk of Malignancy of Women with an Adnexal Mass and Ovarian Cancer.

In a landmark study, investigators from Europe propose a new and simple method to assess the risk of malignancy of women with an adnexal mass. The method identified between 89-99 percent of patients with ovarian cancer using the results of ultrasound examination, which can be obtained in referral and non-referral centers.
