Semin Ultrasound CT MR. 2015 Aug;36(4):348-60. doi: 10.1053/j.sult.2015.05.003. Epub 2015 Jun 11.


Benign and malignant uterine masses can be seen in the women. Some of these are asymptomatic and incidentally discovered, whereas others can be symptomatic. With the soft tissue contrast resolution magnetic resonance imaging can render a definitive diagnosis, which can further help streamline patient management. In this article we show magnetic resonance imaging examples of benign and malignant masses of the uterus and their treatment strategies.
