Decrease of signal intensity of myometrium and cervical stroma after ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO) particles administration: an MR finding with potential benefits in T staging of uterine neoplasms.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Following the empiric observation of a significant decrease of signal intensity of both myometrium and cervical stroma on ultrasmall superparamagnetic iron oxide (USPIO)-enhanced images, the aim of our study was to evaluate whether USPIO-enhanced T2*-weighted gradient echo (GRE) images might provide any potential advantage on T-staging of uterine… (More)
