Thanks Sherrill,

The abdominal pain checklist includes “intraabdominal tumor” which might prompt a CT in the right setting and diagnosis of ovarian cancer.  Decisions about lumping and splitting for clinicians is a whole science, not adequately explored.  Pathologists know how to do it.  Billers know how to do it.  But authors writing for clinicians struggle with these decisions.

Mark,

Thanks for forwarding these excellent lists.

I sent feedback to the Symptom Specific Diagnostic Checklists<http://pie.med.utoronto.ca/DC/index.htm>/ John Ely to suggest adding “ovarian cancer” to the abdominal symptom list.

Best,

Sherrill
