Abstract

Evaluation of acute abdominal pain in a pregnant patient is a clinical challenge. In these patients, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can allow a systematic cross-sectional evaluation of the entire abdomen and can provide clinically useful information in a short enough time for emergent diagnosis. This pictorial essay demonstrates MRI findings of various maternal diseases that can present as acute abdominal pain in pregnant patients. Familiarity with these findings is important for the radiologist to make an accurate and prompt diagnosis.
