Abstract

OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this article is to provide a current review of the spectrum of CT and MRI findings seen in common congenital anomalies of the seminal vesicles. CONCLUSION. CT and MRI can both accurately show renal and seminal vesicle anomalies. Seminal vesicle anomalies often occur concurrently with renal and vasal defects. MRI is a better tool for accurately defining anatomic relationships when one is planning to excise a seminal vesicle cyst or if one is considering a difficult differential diagnosis.
