Lesions of the seminal vesicles and their MRI characteristics - Abstract

Over the past few decades, MRI of the prostate has made great strides in improving cancer detection and is being embraced by more clinicians each day.

This article aims to review the imaging characteristics of common and uncommon, but consequential lesions involving the seminal vesicles (SV), as seen predominantly on MRI. Many of these findings are seen incidentally during imaging of the prostate. Anatomy and embryology of the SV will be described which will help illustrate the associations of abnormalities seen. Congenital, infectious, neoplastic, and tumor mimics will be explored in detail, with discussion on clinical presentation and treatment strategies.
