Abstract: The incidence of assisted conception has increased dramatically in Europe, doubling over the past decade. Assisted reproductive technology (ART) is involved in approximately 1 % of births in the developed world. With the increasing use of ART, doctors and radiologists are more likely to encounter associated complications that are sometimes life-threatening. These complications include ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), ovarian torsion, and ectopic and heterotopic pregnancy. Awareness of these entities and their imaging features will facilitate accurate and timely diagnosis and help avoid potentially fatal consequences.
