*Important Information on Lab Test Processing Times: Ulta Lab Tests is committed to informing you about the processing times for your lab tests processed through Quest Diagnostics. Please note that the estimated processing time for each test, indicated in business days, is based on data from the past 30 days across the 13 Quest Diagnostics laboratories for each test. These estimates are intended to serve as a guide and are not guarantees. Factors such as laboratory workload, weather conditions, holidays, and the need for additional testing or maintenance can influence actual processing times. We aim to offer estimates to help you plan accordingly. Please understand that these times may vary, and processing times are not guaranteed.

ROMA™ (Risk of Ovarian Malignancy Algorithm)


CA125, HE4 Ovarian CA Monitoring, and Risk of Ovarian Malignancy calculation

Clinical Significance

The risk of Ovarian Malignancy Algorithm (ROMA™) test is intended to aid in assessing the risk of ovarian cancer in women with a pelvic mass based on the patient's HE4 and CA125 levels, and their menopausal status. Women with ROMA™ levels above the cutoff have an increased risk of ovarian cancer. ROMA™ must be interpreted in conjunction with an independent clinical and radiological assessment.

The ROMA™ test is indicated for women who meet the following criteria:
over age 18; presence of an ovarian pelvic mass for which surgery is planned; and not yet referred to an oncologist.

The CA125 and HE4 tests are performed using the Abbott ARCHITECT i2000SR unit. The values obtained with different assay methods cannot be used interchangeably due to differences in assay methods and reagent specificity.

The test is not intended as a screening stand-alone diagnostic or tumor monitoring assay. Tumor monitoring using HE4 and/or CA125 should be ordered separately.

The ROMA value is the result of a computation based on the HE4 and CA125 values observed.
