To evaluate accuracy of ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging in characterizing adnexal lesions. To determine which patients may benefit from magnetic resonance imaging. Adnexal masses are a common clinical problem, a common cause for morbidity and mortality in female population. Evaluation of adnexa has evolved significantly in past decade due to application and advancement of ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging. The current study described the advantages of MRI over USG in characterising the adnexal lesions as benign or malignant. MRI has better accuracy and specificity in recognising the malignant potential of the lesion which are 97% and 100% respectively (p <0.01) because of its higher soft tissue resolution and better Multiplanar imaging.
