ULTRASOUND DIPLOMA

the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound recommended the following management strategies for women with simple cysts:

Reproductive-aged women

  • Cyst <3 cm: No action necessary; the cyst is a normal physiologic finding and should be referred to as a follicle.
  • 3–5 cm: No follow-up necessary; the cyst is almost certainly benign.
  • 5–7 cm: Yearly imaging; the cyst is highly likely to be benign.
  • >7 cm: Additional imaging is recommended.

Postmenopausal women

  • <1 cm: No follow-up necessary; the cyst is almost certainly benign.
  • 1–7 cm: Yearly imaging; the cyst is likely to be benign.
  • >7 cm: Additional imaging is recommended.
