Patient history

A 29-year-old female with a history of primary infertility with menorrhagia since 8 months was referred for an MRI examination at Holy Family Hospital, New Delhi, India.

MR examination

The MR examination was performed on a Multiva 1.5T system at release 5.1 using the HeadSpineTorso (HST) coil.

The images demonstrate a sharply marginated area of low signal intensity on T1- and T2-weighted images within the right wall of the uterine body abutting and deforming the endometrial cavity.
Similar smaller sub-centimeter lesions could be demonstrated within the left and anterior
walls. Blood products present within the endometrium.

A thin sleeve of fluid is seen around the right ovary, uterine fibroids and intramural myomas demonstrating the capabilities of Multiva in this area.


MRI findings are consistent with fibroid uterus with submucosal and intramural myomas.
Cystic area in left ovary
likely of follicular origin and smaller cystic areas contain blood product.

Impact of using Multiva 1.5T

MRI of the female pelvis can be challenging due to motion artifacts and a demand for high SNR in combination with small FOV imaging at high resolution to deliver diagnosis.

This case demonstrates outstanding Multiva performance in imaging the details of the female pelvis. The Multiva female pelvis protocol includes a number of small FOV sequences that deliver details of all pelvic structures.
