Answer

The presence of an enlarged ovary with lack of intraovarian arterial or venous flow is highly indicative of torsion, particularly if the typical appearance of an enlarged ovary with small peripheral cysts is depicted. However, the presence of adnexal flow should not be construed as ruling out the diagnosis.
