A wide spectrum of differential diagnosis exists in case of gynaecological emergencies which also includes gastrointestinal and urologic diseases. Radiologic imaging primarily bases on sonography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging are used for subsequent evaluation. The detailed algorithm is oriented on clinical symptoms and signs. The most important signs are left and right lower quadrant abdominal pain, vaginal bleeding, and sudden onset of pain in the breast.
