Abstract

Ultrasound, hysteroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging has been considerated to assess the loco-regional or extrapelvic extension of the endometrial carcinoma. Sonography has demonstrated a certain inaccuracy in predicting myometrial invasion or the involvement of the canal. Histeroscopy allows us to characterize neoplasia and to assess its extension in the cervical canal. MR imaging is more helpful in the diagnosis of channel invasion. The assessment of ovarian metastasis requires ultrasonography or coronal planes RM imaging. As regards the involvement of the pelvic and extrapelvic lymphonodes MR is more accurate than ultrasound scan.
