MRI May Help Predict Endometrial Cancer Prognosis
MRI may be useful as a prognostic indicator in patients with endometrial cancer (EC), evaluating recurrence-free survival, according to a study presented at RSNA 2016.
Researchers from Texas performed a retrospective study to evaluate MRI characteristics of EC and correlate with pathology, genomic features, and recurrence-free survival. Three radiologists evaluated images from 71 patients with biopsy-proven EC. They recorded the depth of myometrial invasion (DMI) as less than 50% and equal to or more than 50%. Qualitative signal intensity (SI) was recorded as greater than myometrium, equal to myometrium, and less than myometrium on sagittal T2WI and DCE sequences, graded 1-3.....
