|What anatomical structures are well seen with MRI|
These are axial (left) and sagittal (right) T2 weighted MRI images of the female pelvis. The uterus and ovaries are beautifully displayed on MRI. The different soft tissue components of the uterus can be differentiated on the sagittal image; the endometrium is bright and the myometrium is darker. Note that the ovarian follicles are seen as white (fluid filled) structures. Click here to see an axial CT image of the pelvis to compare.
The rectum, pelvic sidewalls, prostate and seminal vesicles are also well seen on MRI.
