Uterine myomas and adenomyosis are common findings, particularly in patients with symptoms of abdominal enlargement, pelvic pressure, abnormal uterine bleeding, dysmenorrhea and dyspareunia. The diagnosis and differentiation between both entities are critical in establishing treatment options and the operative approach for surgical management. This article reviews diagnostic options, their relative accuracy, and the impact accurate diagnosis has on treatment. A review was performed using PubMed, MdConsult, OVID and reviews, including cross-referenced articles, prospective and retrospective studies, published from 1980 to 2013. The article reviews the use of ultrasound, with its various modalities, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), and positron emission tomography (PET) in the diagnosis, pretreatment evaluation, and differentiation of the myomas and adenomyosis.
