The detection of vaginal lesions has increased with the expanding use of cross-sectional imaging. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)—with its high-contrast resolution and multiplanar capabilities—is often useful for characterizing vaginal masses. Vaginal masses can be classified as congenital, inflammatory, cystic (benign), and neoplastic (benign or malignant) in etiology. Recognition of the typical MR imaging features of such lesions is important because it often determines the treatment… 
Utility of preoperative examination and magnetic resonance imaging for diagnosis of anterior vaginal wall masses
TLDR
Preoperative diagnosis using exam, MRI, and cystourethroscopy have a high diagnostic accuracy for anterior vaginal wall masses.
Magnetic resonance imaging features of myxoid leiomyoma of the vagina: A case report
We report a rare case of a voluminous vaginal myxoid leiomyoma in a 27-year-old nulliparous woman. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) revealed a mass arising from the vagina, with inhomogeneous signal
Vaginal Fibroma: An Unusual Vaginal Tumor
TLDR
A 42-year-old woman, para 1, developed a vaginal myoma, which was a solid mass in her fornix that established the diagnosis of a fibroid tumor of the vagina, and had an uneventful postoperative recovery.
Imaging of female pelvic malignancies regarding MRI, CT, and PET/CT
TLDR
Whereas ultrasound still remains the imaging modality of choice in clinical practice for the early diagnosis of female pelvic malignancies, MRI is more frequently recognized as a diagnostic tool for its accuracy in tumor identification.
Vaginal cysts: An important differential diagnosis in the anterior compartment.
Imaging of female pelvic malignancies regarding MRI, CT, and PET/CT
TLDR
MRI is a useful additional diagnostic complement but by no means replaces established methods of gynecologic diagnostics and ultrasound.
Vaginal Fibroid—a Diagnostic and Surgical Dilemma
TLDR
Although it is a rare tumor, a vaginal leiomyoma may present with a variety of clinical features and may be mistaken preoperatively for a cervical fibroid, and excision and enucleation are the treatments of choice.
Vaginal Leiomyoma: A rare cause of Menometrorrhagia
TLDR
A 26 year old multipara female patient who presented with menometrorrhagia of 2 months duration is presented, found to have a large hypoechoic mass within the vagina which was diagnosed as a pedunculated cervical fibroid and a diagnosis of vaginal leimyoma was made confirmed by histopathology.

Vaginal agenesis: classification by MR imaging.
TLDR
Vaginal agenesis was studied by magnetic resonance (MR) imaging lin a 15-year-old girl, a 19- year-old woman, and a 21- woman to demonstrate the presence or absence of a normal cervix and functioning endometrium.

TLDR
MR imaging offers unique depiction of congenital anomalies and should be used when results of physical examination or other radiologic studies, such as ultrasound, are inconclusive.

TLDR
It is concluded that MR is an accurate modality for imaging uterine leiomyomas, since it clearly demonstrates tumor number, size, location, and the presence and extent of degeneration.

TLDR
The ability of MR imaging to help identify various types of soft tissue and to provide an approach to interpretation of MR images of the female pelvis through tissue characterization are reviewed.

TLDR
MR imaging was accurate in revealing and delineating the extent of vaginal fistulas in patients with clinical symptoms of such fistulas, and was correlated with examination under anesthesia.
