Advice

In settings where advanced imaging is used more liberally, the performance of the RIPASA Score is unclear, and no study has yet assessed its impact when applied clinically.

Management

We are unaware of validated management algorithms using the RIPASA Score.

Critical Actions

The RIPASA Score integrates and thus requires a number of laboratory test results and historical features, and while accuracy is high in initial studies, a larger more rigorous validation and/or implementation study would be very useful.
