Abstract: 
The differential diagnosis for adnexal masses is wide, encompassing a range of benign, borderline, and malignant entities. Stratification of risk is made on age, menopausal status, imaging features, and tumor markers. This review outlines the different imaging modalities available to characterize adnexal masses, describes the typical ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging features of the most commonly encountered adnexal lesions, and provides a suggested imaging algorithm in the management of such patients.
