Susceptibility weighted with phase imaging is a useful technique in definitive characterization of various stages of blood as well as in calcification in brain; however it has never been used in the evaluation of female pelvis. We studied various pelvic lesions on 3 Tesla MRI scanner and quantified the phase value. Due to the differential para- and di-magnetic nature of calcification and various stages of hemorrhage significant quantitative difference in phase values was seen. With no additional scan time, valuable information obtained from phase MR imaging can give a definitive answer for characterization of various pelvic pathologies in females.
