Imaging in endometrial carcinoma.

Bottom Line: Several imaging techniques such as transvaginal ultrasonography (TVUS), computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been used as diagnostic tools for preoperative staging of EC.Recently, positron emission tomography (PET), PET/CT, and PET/MRI have also been used in staging these patients.In this article, we review the value of imaging in diagnosis, staging, treatment planning, and detection of recurrent disease in patients with EC.

ABSTRACT
Endometrial carcinoma (EC) is the most common gynecologic malignancy in the United States. Prognosis depends on patient age, histological grade, depth of myometrial invasion and/or cervical invasion, and the presence of lymph node metastases. Although EC is staged surgically according to the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) system, preoperative imaging can assist in optimal treatment planning. Several imaging techniques such as transvaginal ultrasonography (TVUS), computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been used as diagnostic tools for preoperative staging of EC. Recently, positron emission tomography (PET), PET/CT, and PET/MRI have also been used in staging these patients. In this article, we review the value of imaging in diagnosis, staging, treatment planning, and detection of recurrent disease in patients with EC.

Figure 15: A 71-year-old female with endometrial cancer. Sagittal T2W MR image shows focal loss of low signal intensity wall of the bladder (arrow) suggestive of bladder involvement indicating stage IVA disease

Mentions: MRI's superior soft tissue resolution makes it better than other cross-sectional imaging modalities in assessing adnexal metastases [Figure 13], vaginal involvement [Figure 14], and invasion into the bladder and rectum [Figure 15].
