Female Pelvis
SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced
ORGANIZERS: Masoom A. Haider, M.D., F.R.C.P.C., Shahid M. Hussain, M.D., Ph.D., John P. Mugler, III, Ph.D. &

Monday, 22 April
This two-hour course will review optimal imaging techniques for evaluating diseases of the female pelvis, including perfusion, diffusion-weighted imaging, susceptibility-weighted imaging, and fat-water separation techniques. An algorithmic approach to adnexal mass characterization will be provided. The role of MR imaging in the staging and follow-up in patients with endometrial and cervical carcinoma will be discussed.
This course is aimed at radiologists, imaging scientists and MR technologists who wish to review the state-of-art for evaluating diseases of the female pelvis, and to learn ways of optimizing MR imaging techniques for these indications.

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Implement optimal imaging techniques for evaluating disease of the female pelvis;
  • Describe the added value of MRI in adnexal mass characterization; and
  • Identify the added value of MRI in the management of patients with cervical and endometrial carcinoma.
