New screening method may pick up twice as many ovarian cancers
New screening method may pick up twice as many ovarian cancers (May 12, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From the UK - A novel screening method for ovarian cancer may pick up twice as many cancers, according to a report published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Researchers studied over 46,000 women, randomly assigning participants to transvaginal ultrasound or multi-modal screening. The latter is a new technique in which statistical calculation is used to exactly interpret changing levels of a particular protein linked to ovarian cancer may affect their risk of developing the disease. Results showed that the new method detected cancer in 86% of women with invasive epithelial ovarian cancer, whereas conventional test identifies half that many.
