  • Member of committeeThe American College of Radiology is sponsoring a committee for the development of “O-Rads”, an acronym for an Ovarian-Adnexal Imaging-Reporting-Data System. “O-Rads” will be a quality assurance tool for the standardized description of ovarian/adnexal pathology. The creation of a standardized lexicon will permit the development of a practical, uniform vocabulary for describing the imaging characteristics of ovarian masses, with the ultimate goal of applying it to a risk stratification classification for consistent follow up and management in clinical practice. We expect that the work of the committee will be the basis for one or more evidence-based white papers dealing with an adnexal mass lexicon and risk classification system., The American College of Radiology “O-Rads” committee - “O-Rads” will be a quality assurance tool for the standardized description of ovarian/adnexal pathology, American College of Radiology, 2015
