BACKGROUND: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been shown to be an accurate imaging technique for the preoperative assessment of local staging of endometrial cancer and for evaluating the depth of myometrial invasion.

MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a single-center retrospective study performed on patients with histopathologically proven endometrial carcinoma who underwent an MRI examination of the pelvis between October 2017 and May 2020.

RESULTS: In the present analysis, mean apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values for each histologic grade were 0.72 ± 0.13 × 10

CONCLUSION: Preoperative noninvasive radiological assessment for tumor volume, TV/ UV or tumor volume/uterine volume is important surrogate markers for preoperative prognostication of endometrial carcinoma.
