TO EVALUATE THE ROLE OF MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING (MRI) IN PELVIC MASSES IN FEMALE PATIENTS
Keywords:Magnetic Resonance Imaging, pelvic & female.
Background & Method: Study was conducted at Mediciti Institute of Medical Sciences, Medchal, Telangana number of cases studied 30. All clinically suspected female patients with pelvic masses referred to the Department of Radio-diagnosis were evaluated. These patients were first subjected to Ultrasonography followed by MRI (plain and contrast where ever required). MRI findings were compared with that of Ultrasonography. These findings were compared with that of operative findings and histopathological findings wherever performed.
Result: Majority of uterocervical lesions on MRI were malignant in nature. One case of endometrial polyp in usg, diagnosed as stage Ib endometrial carcinoma, and cervical fibroid was diagnosed as cervical carcinoma stage II, on MRI 2cases of cervical and 2 cases of endometrial carcinoma.
Conclusion: In practice USG is the primary modality for diagnosing the pelvic mass. MRI is superior to ultrasound and can be used as problem solving tool in the assessment of pelvic mass. The multiplanar imaging capability allows accurate identification of origin of mass, characterization of mass(solid, haemorrhagic, fatty and fibrous contents).This may obviate surgery or significantly contribute to the preoperative planning of pelvic mass
