Thirty-two patients were included who met the inclusion criteria. The average age of the patients was 40 years range, 23—61 years. Cervical cancer CC is preceded by intraepithelial lesions, which are characterized by alterations in the cells of the cervical epithelium, without involving the stroma. These alterations are related to infections with the human papilloma virus HPV. The presence of HPV does not necessarily cause cancer, but it does cause the persistence of the cancer.

Carcinoma of the cervix is a malignancy arising from the cervix. It is the third most common gynecologic malignancy after endometrial and ovarian. Invasive cervical carcinoma is thought to arise from the transformation of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia CIN. This is situated on the ectocervix in younger patients though regresses into the endocervical canal with age.

Hence cervical tumors tend to be exophytic in younger patients and endophytic with advancing age. In order to be radiographically visible, tumors must be at least stage Ib or above see staging. MRI is the imaging modality of choice to depict the primary tumor and assess the local extent. MRI can stratify patients to the optimum treatment group of primary surgery or combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Tumors stage IIa and below are treated with surgery. It is performed primarily to assess adenopathy, but also has roles in defining advanced disease, monitoring distant metastasis, planning the placement of radiation ports, and guiding percutaneous biopsy.

A dedicated MRI protocol is often useful for optimal imaging assessment. The normal low signal cervical stroma provides intrinsic contrast for the high signal cervical tumor. The FIGO staging system is the most commonly adopted. One of the keys roles of the radiologist is to help determine staging, as this may lead to appropriate management pathway either with surgery or chemo-radiotherapy. At the time of writing stage IIa vs.

IIb is considered as an important separator in deciding whether a case is operable or not. Please Note: You can also scroll through stacks with your mouse wheel or the keyboard arrow keys. Updating… Please wait.
