To compare two MR sequences at 1.5 T—T2-weighted and contrast-enhanced T1-weighted images—by using macroscopic sections to determine which image type enables the most accurate assessment of cervical carcinoma. Forty consecutive patients (mean age, 39.2 years) with biopsy-proven cervical carcinoma were included. Each MR sequence was assessed for tumour localisations, tumour margins, and cancer extent with the consensus of two readers, and tumour margins were rated on a five-point scale. MR… CONTINUE READING
