PURPOSE To describe the morphologic and signal intensity characteristics on magnetic resonance (MR) images of fibromas and fibrothecomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS MR images of 11 female patients with histologically proved fibromas or fibrothecomas were reviewed, and morphologic and signal intensity characteristics of the lesions were analyzed. MR imaging(More)
PURPOSE To identify potential pitfalls in using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to determine the depth of myometrial invasion in patients with clinical stage I endometrial carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty women with clinical stage I endometrial carcinoma underwent preoperative pelvic MR imaging. Uterine length, tumor signal intensity, appearance of(More)
OBJECTIVE Our goal was to determine the sensitivity, specificity, predictive value, and accuracy of pelvic MRI in the prospective evaluation of women with a clinically suspected pelvic mass. MATERIALS AND METHODS One-hundred three patients with clinically suspected pelvic masses were prospectively evaluated by pelvic MRI. Masses were analyzed for size,(More)
High-resolution magnetic resonance (MR) images of 12 hysterectomy specimens were correlated with results of light microscopy, image analysis, and immunohistochemical studies to investigate the histologic counterpart of the low-signal-intensity band, or junctional zone (JZ), that surrounds the bright central uterine stripe. All specimens were imaged with a(More)
Ultrasound is the most commonly used imaging technique for the evaluation of thyroid nodules. Sonographic findings are often not specific, and definitive diagnosis is usually made through fine-needle aspiration biopsy or even surgery. In reviewing the literature, terms used to describe nodules are often poorly defined and inconsistently applied. Several(More)
Ultrasonography (US) is an indispensable tool in breast imaging and is complementary to both mammography and magnetic resonance (MR) imaging of the breast. Advances in US technology allow confident characterization of not only benign cysts but also benign and malignant solid masses. Knowledge and understanding of current and emerging US technology, along(More)
Thirty-nine magnetic resonance (MR) studies were performed on 31 women with surgically proved endometriosis. A total of 88 endometriotic lesions ranging in size from 0.2 to 7.5 cm were detected on 24 of 30 MR images of women. The signal intensities ranged from hyperintense on all pulse sequences (41 of 88) to hypointense on all sequences (24 of 88); the(More)
Ultrasound should be considered the first-line imaging modality of choice in women presenting with acute or chronic pelvic pain of suspected gynecologic or obstetric origin because many, if not most, gynecologic/obstetric causes of pelvic pain are easily diagnosed on ultrasound examination. Since the clinical presentation of gynecologic causes of pelvic(More)
Endometrial cancer is one of the common malignancies in the female genital tract. Imaging in pretreatment evaluation may play an important role in an assessment of morphological prognostic factors including tumor size, depth of myometrial invasion, endocervical extent, and lymph node status. Imaging is also useful in posttreatment evaluation of patients(More)
