Various benign and malignant tumors and tumor-like lesions in the female pelvis may appear as cystic masses. We describe the optimized MR protocol for evaluating cystic masses and the added value of advanced MR techniques: Diffusion-weighted imaging; Fat/Water separation techniques; Susceptibility-weighted imaging; High-resolution MRI at 3T; 3D-Dynamic contrast enhanced MRI; MR Spectroscopy, in identifying the tumor origin, in distinguishing benign and malignant lesions, in estimating specific histological subtypes, and for the planning of adequate treatment.
