  • Figure 1
    Transabdominal ultrasound

    An intrapelvic mass seen with mixed hypo- and hyperechogenic components.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Transabdominal ultrasound;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Transrectal ultrasound

    The same intrapelvic mass seen with mixed hypo- and hyperechogenic components.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Transrectal ultrasound;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    Abdominale CT
     

    A presacral well-demarcated mass (7 cm x 8 cm x 11 cm) with a thick wall, solid and cystic components and displaying a heterogeneous enhancement.

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Abdominale CT;

    The same mass, located infraperitoneal, presacral and retrovesical, superior to the prostate and not distinguishable from the right seminal vesicle. There is even displacement from the bladder against the anterior...

The same mass, located infraperitoneal, presacral and retrovesical, superior to the prostate and not distinguishable from the right seminal vesicle. There is even displacement from the bladder against the anterior abdominal wall and the sigmoid colon posterolateral to the left.

The same mass, located infraperitoneal, presacral and retrovesical, superior to the prostate and not distinguishable from the right seminal vesicle. There is even displacement from the bladder against the anterior abdominal wall and the sigmoid colon posterolaterally to the left. At the same level as seen in the MR image, Fig. 4a.
