INTRODUCTION: The aim of the present study was to determine the efficiency of preoperative magnetic resonance imaging investigation in the determination of the depth of myometrial invasion in endometrial cancer.
METHODS: 41 cases diagnosed with endometrial cancer via endometrial sampling and who underwent investigation with magnetic resonance imaging in preoperative period so as to determine the depth of myometrial invasion were evaluated retrospectively. Imaging and operation data and pathology results were retrieved from hospital files.
RESULTS: Mean age of the patients was 60.5±10.18 (43-86). As surgical procedure, they underwent total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpinghooopherectomy, bilateral pelvic lymph node dissection ± paraaortic lymph node dissection. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging findings were compared with postoperative histology results and sensivitity of magnetic resonance imaging was found to be 68.2%, specifity 84.5%, PPD 68.2% and NPD 84.5% in the evaluation of the depth of myometrial invasion.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Magnetic resonance imaging is an efficient imaging method in the preoperative evaluation of the depth of myometrial invasion in endometrial cancer.
