ACR Appropriateness Criteria Ovarian Cancer Screening

This is a clinical practice guideline for women with average risk and high risk for ovarian cancer. The guideline examines the role of imaging during ovarian cancer screening, and its effectiveness in detecting ovarian cancer at an early stage, in order to potentially improve survival. Variations of procedures, including ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography using fluorine-18-2-fluoro-2-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG-PET), are discussed, as is their appropriateness in different clinical situations.
