Ovarian Cancer Nomogram: Post-Surgery

This tool can be used to predict the chance that a patient will not survive five years after primary surgery for epithelial ovarian cancer. It may be used by clinicians in counseling patients, recommending treatments, and deciding on follow-up strategies. This nomogram incorporates other individualized patient variables beyond tumor stage to more accurately predict outcome. Patients who use this tool should discuss the results with their physician to learn what these results mean for you.
