Differentiation of nonovarian from ovarian lesions is a diagnostic challenge. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) of the pelvis provides excellent tissue characterization and high contrast resolution, allowing for detailed evaluation of adnexal lesions. Salient MRI characteristics of predominantly cystic lesions and predominantly solid adnexal lesions are presented along with epidemiology and clinical presentation. Due to its excellent soft tissue resolution, MRI may be able to characterize indeterminate adnexal masses and aid the radiologist to arrive at the correct diagnosis, thus positively affect patient management.
