Abstract

Two patients with surgically confirmed hemorrhagic infarction of ovarian tumor due to torsion were studied with MR imaging. Histology of the two lesions were serous cystadenoma and fibroma. In both cases, a high intensity rim was observed at the periphery of the mass on T1-weighted image. This finding is thought to be a MRI sign of hemorrhagic infarction of the diseased ovary and to provide a useful clue for urgent surgery.
