Torsion of a Myomatous, Non-gravid Uterus: CT Findings

Free full text article: Torsion of a Myomatous, Non-gravid Uterus:  CT Findings

Abstract
Uterine torsion is a rare condition which is part of a spectrum of gynecological emergencies. If diagnosis is delayed or the condition is left untreated, severe consequences such as infertility and life-threatening complications can arise. As presenting features are often non-specific and can be similar to commonly encountered gastrointestinal and urinary conditions, computed tomography is usually the first imaging modality utilized in an emergency setting. It is therefore important that the radiologist is familiar with recognizing computed tomography features of uterine torsion. We share our findings in a patient with uterine torsion in a non-gravid uterus, diagnosed on contrast-enhanced computed tomography with multiplanar reconstruction.
