Clinical Imaging 1993, 17 (2): 126-32
The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) appearance of 18 paravaginal cysts was reviewed. On MRI, serious cysts were hypointense on T1-weighted and hyperintense on T2-weighted images. Cysts presumed to contain proteinaceous material were hyperintense on T1-weighted and T2-weighted sequences while hemorrhagic cysts exhibited varying stages of hemorrhage. On CT, a high attenuation cyst was presumed to contain proteinaceous material or hemorrhage. MRI and CT examination may reveal paravaginal cysts; their varied appearance must be recognized to avoid confusion with other lesions.
