Although CT is not considered the examination of choice for the detection and characterisation of adnexal diseases, adnexal masses may be incidentally detected during CT examination performed for other clinical indications. Most adnexal incidentalomas are benign, and therefore may not require further investigation, follow-up or intervention; however, few of them may prove malignant. Multidetector CT has improved the diagnostic performance of the technique in the detection and differentiation of adnexal mass lesions. Radiologists should be able to recognise the normal CT appearance of the ovaries and the CT characteristics of various adnexal incidentalomas. This may obviate unnecessary imaging evaluation and allow optimal treatment planning. Regarding the management of adnexal lesions incidentally found on CT, recommendations based on the collective experience of the members of the American College of Radiology Incidental Findings Committee II have recently been presented.
