Multimodality imaging of gynecologic masses

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Diagnosis of ovarian masses can be difficult because many pathologic conditions can affect the ovary and have similar clinical manifestations and radiologic appearances. A specific diagnosis of a given adnexal mass requires a judicious use of different imaging modalities. Each of the three major imaging modalities, ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), plays a specific role in the evaluation of adnexal masses. This review of multimodality imaging of adnexal masses describes and illustrates the role of the different modalities in evaluating a spectrum of gynecologic masses.
