Uterus: Poster Abstract: Comparison of MRI findings with actual HPE findings in case of carcinoma endometrium
This article was originally published by Wolters Kluwer - Medknow and was migrated to Scientific Scholar after the change of Publisher.
The objectives of this study is to investigate the correlation of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in predicting the depth of myometrial invasion, cervical involvement and lymph node involvement and actual histopathological findings in the women with endometrial cancer.
This is a reterospective study of the patients of endometrial cancer from Nov 2011 to Jan 2016 who underwent Surgery (Total abdominal Hystrectomy with B/l salpingoophorectomy with peritoneal washings with b/l pelvic lymphadenectomy with or without para aortic lymphadenectomy) at our centre Max Superspeciality Hospital. CE MRI Pelvis has been done pre operatively in every patient. After the surgery Histopathological reports of the specimen checked and compared with MRI findings of that case. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the validity of MRI findings of endometrial cancer in comparison to final histopathological findings.
For the detection of myometrial invasion, overall sensitivity of MRI is 93.9%, specificity is 66.6%, for cervical involvement Senstivity is 60% and specificity 1s 93.75% and for detection of lymph node involvement sensitivity is 66.6% and specificity is 93.5%. Most common Finding on MRI is thickened endometrium with disruption of Junction jone.
Preoperative pelvic MRI is a sensitive method of identifying invasion to the myometrium in endometrial cancer. MRI Is a sensitive noninvasive modality in predicting locoregional spread in ca endometrium. Senstivity in detecting Myometrial invasion is high but sensitivity is less in detecting cervical involvement and lymph node involvement is less.
