The right ovary contains a partially collapsing functional cyst. The right ovary has a diffusely abnormal hypoechogenic texture.

There is a moderate amount of clear free fluid in the pelvis.

Comparison of both ovaries is often helpful to help identify ovarian torsion. Ultrasound is the best modality to evaluate for torsion, however, one must be aware of the appearance of ovarian torsion on CT, to be able to pick it up on this modality as well.
