Diseases of the Female Pelvis
There are several imaging modalities used in the female pelvis; these are ultrasound followed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT). This seminar will primarily focus on the role of MRI in correlation to other imaging modalities. MRI of the female pelvis has become a useful and commonly used imaging modality. This technique offers not only multiplanar capability but also inherent tissue contrast and tissue characterization. These advantages, along with relative ease of the study, its noninvasiveness and reproducibility, have enhanced the growth of MRI as a useful diagnostic imaging modality in the female pelvis.
