Case Discussion

Calcified uterine fibroids are a common finding on imaging, in this case a pelvic radiograph performed to assess for pain in the hips when walking. It is important as a radiologist to be aware of common incidental findings such as these so time and effort is not wasted investigating benign chronic findings.
