Abstract

Mesenchymal neoplasms of the female genital tract are a diverse group of tumors, of which the most common are smooth muscle tumors. There is a significant overlap in the imaging characteristics of benign and malignant tumors and final diagnosis often requires pathologic correlation. However, familiarity with typical radiologic features, common imaging pitfalls, and the utility of different imaging modalities can be valuable in the evaluation of mesenchymal tumors. This article highlights the imaging features of the most commonly encountered mesenchymal tumors in the female genital tract.
