Susceptibility-weighted (SW) magnetic resonance (MR) sequences have exquisite sensitivity to the blood products within various gynecologic pathologies, and may provide helpful information for the differential diagnosis. In this exhibit we demonstrate the role of SW sequences in diagnosing various pathologies in the female pelvis such as hemorrhagic cysts (endometrioma vs non-endometriotic cyst), extra-ovarian endometriosis and adenomyosis, gestation-associated lesions (ectopic pregnancy and retained products of conception), red degeneration of uterine leiomyoma, high-grade malignancy such as uterine sarcomas with hemorrhagic necrosis, and ovarian torsion.
