Aims and objectives: Endometrial carcinoma is the most common gynecologic malignant neoplasm.The prognosis of endometrial carcinoma depends on the depth of myometrial invasion and the presence of lymph node metastasis. The purpose of our study was to evaluate the possibilities of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagno[...]

Methods and materials: 63 patients with histological diagnosis of endometrial cancer were studied with MRI at 1,5 and 3T magnet. In all cases the MRI results were compared with histological data. Patients underwent surgery or biopsy. Qualitative image analysis included the depth of myometrial infiltration, infiltration [...]

Results: MRI is considered the most accurate imaging modality for the pretreatment local staging of endometrial carcinoma . The degree of myometrial invasion continues to be a consistent indication of tumor virulence. In our study On MR images and at histologic analysis, myometrial invasion was classified as[...]

Conclusion: Magnetic resonance imaging has high sensitivity and specificity in the preoperative assessment of endometrial carcinoma.
