Abstract

This review article summarizes and comments the role of magnetic resonanceimaging (NM) In the management of endometrial cancer. The MRI technique, appearance, and diagnostic criteria of endometrial carcinoma are discussed. The value of MRI in the preoperative staging of endometrial cancer is compared to alternative strategies. Contrast-enhanced MRI performs best in the pretreatment evaluation of myometrial or cervical invasion, compared to ultrasonography (US), computed tomography (CT), or nonenhanced AM. The overall costs and accuracy are similar to those of the current methods of staging, including intraoperative gross dissection of the uterus. In addition, results of MRI might decrease the number of unnecessary lymph node dissections. (C) 2001 Wiley-Liss, Inc.
