Endometrial cancer stage II

Case Study
Papaioannou, Georgia, M.D., Ph.D. Athens, Mitera Hospital Greece

Patient history

A 59-year-old post-menopausal female with vaginal bleeding underwent an MR examination on the Panorama HFO at Mitera Maternity and General Hospital, Athens, Greece. Endometrial sampling revealed endometrial cancer. MRI of the pelvis was requested to verify operability of the lesion.

MR examination

The ST Body/Spine M coil was used.
High resolution T2W with 4 mm slice thickness was particularly helpful.

A solid lesion of abnormal signal intensity and abnormal enhancement was demonstrated at the right anterior part of the uterine body which infiltrates the myometrium, but does not extend to cervix nor does it infiltrate the serosa, in keeping with endometrial Ca stage II (FIGO classification, operable).

Diagnosis

The findings were consistent with endometrial cancer stage II, which was confirmed at surgery.

Clinical impact of Panorama HFO

Panorama HFO excels in a wide variety of oncology-related scans with high-quality images on the abdominal area as well.
