Ovarian torsion: pictorial essay focused on magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography findings. Radiol Bras [online]. 2012, vol.45, n.4, pp. 225-229.

The present article is aimed at describing the key findings of ovarian torsion at computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging. Two investigators have consensually selected and analyzed magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography images acquired in the period from January 2010 to December 2011 of patients with proven acute abdominal pain resulting from ovarian torsion, highlighting the main imaging findings. The increasing role of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging in the assessment of patient with acute abdomen of gynecological origin demands radiologists' familiarity with the imaging findings related to the main causes of such condition through the use of these diagnostic tools in association with ultrasonography.
