Abstract

Objective: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of diffusionweighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the preoperative assessment of myometrial invasion by endometrial cancer. Materials and methods: In this prospective study, 47 patients with histologically confirmed endometrial cancer underwent preoperative MR imaging and total hysterectomy. The MR protocol included spin-echo multishot T2- weighted, dynamic T1-weighted and DW images acquired with b-values of 0 and 500 s/mm2. Myometrial tumour spread was classified as superficial (
