Assessment of carcinoma of cervix with the Use of MRI and CT scan Methods


Dr. Anshupriya, Dr. Shambhavi, Dr. GN Singh

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is the preferred imaging modality because of its ability to assess soft tissue in detail, permitting thereby better identification of stromal and parametrical invasion as compared to computed tomography (CT). The purpose of the study is to compare CT and MRI findings, in the evaluation and staging of uterine cervical carcinoma with special emphasis on detection of earliest lesion. The 15 patients of suspicion of uterine cervical carcinoma were enrolled in the present study. The patients were referred to the Department of Radiology in PMCH, Patna from July 2018 to Dec 2018.CT Images of the pelvis will be obtained on a Toshiba, Asteion TSX -021A Spiral CT unit. Matrix size of 512 * 512 and slice section of 10 mm. MRI was performed on the 1.5 Tesla system (GE Healthcare) using a pelvic array coil for the pelvic scan and a torso phased-array coil for the para aortic scan. MR imaging is an essential modality for diagnosing cervical lesions because the signal intensity or configuration of the lesion demonstrated on MR images reflects the pathologic findings. MRI has been shown to minimize costs in some clinical settings by limiting or eliminating the need for further expensive or more invasive diagnostic or surgical procedures. In conclusion, MR imaging is superior to CT in the evaluation of parametrial status. Overall, the accuracy rates of CT and MR imaging for pelvic lymph node metastasis were equal in our study. MR imaging has the ability to differentiate between fibrosis and recurrence in post radiotherapy cases.
