female, 47 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Axial T2-weighted image of the pelvis

    Pelvic mass with well defined margin. Heterogeneous signal intensity of the lesion with high signal intensity areas. Note differences of signal intensity between mass and uterus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T2-weighted image of the pelvis;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Axial T2-weighted image of the pelvis

    Left ovary is present between uterus and posterior wall of the bladder. Right ovary is not visible.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T2-weighted image of the pelvis;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Sagital T2-weighted image of the pelvis

    Heterogeneous anterior pelvic mass with sharp borders. The mass is distinct from uterus on sagital image. Peritoneal fluid was also present.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Sagital T2-weighted image of the pelvis;
     
     
  • Figure 4
    Axial T1-weighted image of the pelvis

    Pelvic mass with homogeneous signal close to signal of the uterus.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Axial T1-weighted image of the pelvis;
     
     
  • Figure 5
    Axial T1-weighted image after injection of Gadolinium

    The mass showed an heterogeneous enhancement compared to myometrial enhancement, which allows the distinction between an ovarian mass and a uterin leiomyoma.
