The MRI is the examination of choice for the study of the female pelvis. It also allows a dynamic morpho-functional study of pelvic statics, especially in the case of pelvic prolapse.
MRI is the modality of choice to analyze the female pelvis, for various benign (endometriosis, pelvic prolapse…) or malignant gynaecological pathologies (uterine cancer, cervix cancer, ovarian cancer…), combining high spatial resolution for a detailed anatomical study and good contrast resolution. In endometriosis, MRI is a good complement to ultrasound and allows accurate lesion-mapping (endometrioma, adenomyosis, peritoneal implants…). In pelvic prolapse, dynamic MRI (Defeco MRI) allows the visualization of the different pelvic organs (uterus, bladder, rectum…) and detects prolapses, especially with dynamic in-real-time manoeuvres.
