In the present study we aimed to develop a formula for predicting adnexal malignancy based on menopausal status, ultrasound morphology, and color Doppler findings. Logistic regression analysis was performed retrospectively in 79 adnexal masses (59 benign and 20 malignant) in 73 unselected and consecutive patients.
All these masses had been preoperatively evaluated using transvaginal color Doppler ultrasonography. In logistic analysis menopausal status (premenopausal vs postmenopausal), color Doppler findings (no flow or lowest resistance index >0.45 vs lowest resistance index
