Role of RMI (RISK OF MALIGNANCY INDEX) in the prediction of ovarian malignancy and its correlation with
histopathological examination report.
Material and methods:
Total of 30 cases are studied prospectively during 1year period in Mamata General Hospital, Khammam
from may 2011-april 2012.
All 30 cases underwent Laparotomy & 2 cases with RMI-1880 & 1998 underwent staging laparotomy and diagnosed with
ADENOCARCINOMA of ovary. One case though RMI was 30, clinical features are highly suggestive of malignancy & staging
Laparotomy was done & HPE report showed DYSGERMINOMA of ovary. Rest 27cases with RMI <250 are benign in origin and
confirmed with Histopathological examination report.
RMI score using the age, ultrasound score and ca-125 levels is a useful predictor for assessment of risk of malignancy
in ovarian tumors of epithelial origin
