  • OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the ability of MRI to characterize sonographically indeterminate adnexal masses and to define the sonographic features contributing to indeterminate diagnoses. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two blinded radiologists retrospectively reviewed the MRI examinations of 87 patients with 95 sonographically indeterminate adnexal masses. Reviewers determined the origin of a mass, its tissue content (cystic, solid, complex cystic, or cystic and solid), tissue… CONTINUE READING
