O-RADS: ACR White Paper

Rochelle Andreotti MD et al has published in JACR White Paper of the ACR Ovarian-Adnexal Reporting and Data System Committee.  

  • "Multiple reporting and data systems have been developed under the direction of the ACR for quality assurance, standardized communication, and clinical decision support for pathology in various organ systems.  First issued in 1993, the implementation of the first and highly successful BI-RADS has transformed breast imaging into a universal language with defined descriptive terminology leading to specific management recommendations. 
  • In the summer of 2015, under the supervision of the ACR, the Ovarian-Adnexal Reporting and Data System (O-RADS) Committee was formed with the purpose of creating a standardized lexicon that would permit the development of a practical, uniform vocabulary for describing the imaging characteristics of ovarian masses. 
  • This system is a collaborative effort of an international group of experts in gynecological imaging and management of ovarian or adnexal masses that includes a broad spectrum of experts in radiology, gynecology, pathology, and gynecologic oncology from the United States, Canada, and Europe. 
  • Because ultrasound is widely considered the primary imaging modality in the evaluation of adnexal masses and MRI, the problem-solving tool, parallel working groups for ultrasound and MRI were formed to develop separate but consistent groups of terms specific to each modality."

Sharing the white paper which describes the consensus process in the creation of a standardized lexicon for ovarian and adnexal lesions and the resultant lexicon.
