To evaluate the appropriateness of radiologic examinations for patients with an indeterminate renal mass
Utility of radiologic procedures in evaluation of indeterminate renal mass
The two general classes of keywords are those related to the condition (e.g., ankle pain, fever) and those that describe the diagnostic or therapeutic intervention of interest (e.g., mammography, MRI).
The search terms and parameters are manipulated to produce the most relevant, current evidence to address the American College of Radiology Appropriateness Criteria (ACR AC) topic being reviewed or developed.
Combining the clinical conditions and diagnostic modalities or therapeutic procedures narrows the search to be relevant to the topic.
Restrict the search to the year prior to the last topic update or in some cases the author of the topic may specify which year range to use in the search.
For new topics, the year range is restricted to the last 5 years unless the topic author provides other instructions.
