The O-RADS Ultrasound education subcommittee has created a three-part webinar series to discuss the implementation of the O-RADS US concepts as written in the Ovarian-Adnexal Reporting Lexicon for Ultrasound: A White Paper of the ACR Ovarian-Adnexal Reporting and Data System Committee(hyperlink) and the O-RADS US Risk Stratification and Management System:A Consensus Guideline from the ACR Ovarian-Adnexal Reporting and Data System Committee (hyperlink).
The first video in the series summarizes how to use an algorithmic approach to streamline adnexal lesion categorization and management and includes a general overview of the governing concepts, lexicon terminology and suggestions for reporting. This will be followed by a presentation of cases of varying degree of difficulty that illustrate use of the lexicon and risk management system including technical considerations and tips. The third video will address frequently asked questions regarding O-RADS US to enhance the user’s understanding and application of the system.
The following O-RADS committee members are presenters of the series: Dr. Lori Strachowski, MD, Dr. Phyllis Glanc, MD, and Chair of the O-RADS committee Dr. Rochelle Andreotti, MD.
1. Describe the abbreviated O-RADS lexicon terminology relevant for risk stratification.
2. Recognize why and when to use O-RADS.
3. Summarize how to use an algorithmic approach to streamline categorization and management.
4. Identify the essential components of a pelvic ultrasound imaging report utilizing O-RADS for ultrasound.
