AGUIRRE F, Javiera et al. MR imaging of pelvic endometriosis: A pictorial review. Rev. chil. radiol. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.4, pp.149-156. ISSN 0717-9308.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-93082012000400002.

Endometriosis is the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity(1-3). This endometrial tissue may be located in the ovaries as endometriomas and/or as extraperitoneal(3,4)./subperitoneal implants When implant depth is greater than 5 mm, condition is referred to as deep endometriosis(3,4). It represents a common cause of pelvic pain and infertility in young women(1-3). Surgery remains the best treatment option, so pre-operative evaluation to assess the extent of disease is essential(3,4). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive, non-ionizing radiation method, offering high contrast resolution, which allows multiplanar evaluation of endometriosis, thus facilitating a correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment(2-4). Radiologists have to be familiar with MR imaging appearance of endometriosis, in order to guide clinicians and provide adequate information to assure accurate diagnosis and timely treatment of this entity.
