The aim of the present study was to investigate the costs of a diagnostic workup using MR when International Ovarian Tumors Analysis (IOTA) Simple Rules (SR) are applied. Methods: 208 women with adnexal masses were included (recruited from 2016 to 2017) and submitted to transvaginal US (TVS) scan for the identifications of Simple Rules using IOTA criteria. A cost-benefit analysis will be performed. In the Italian National Health System the cost of a TVS is 43¤ and 278¤ for pelvic MR. Results: Only 13 (6.2%, 95% CI 3.7%-10.4%) masses were indeterminate using SR. The sensitivity of SR was 100% with a specificity of 93.19%. The use of SR associated with examination by an expert just in case of indeterminate masses increased the specificity to 96% with the same sensitivity. Using only the TVS by expert as additional evaluation the overall cost was 559¤ while using MR the cost would have been of 3614¤ with an additional cost of 3055¤. For every 1000 patients screened it will be 62.5 indeterminate masses with an additional expected cost of 14687¤ [95% CI 8695¤-24440¤]. Conclusions: Although the rate of indeterminate cysts is very low using a IOTA standardised ultrasonographic approach, the use of expert when SR are applied showed a good accuracy with a lower cost in comparison with the use of MR in not classifiable masses.
