What is a pelvic MRI?
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the pelvis is an examination that provides the most detailed imaging of your pelvic organs (uterus, ovaries, cervix, prostate, and permanent pelvic structures), which is clearer and more detailed than other imaging methods with this method and does not use ionizing radiation.
When is pelvic MRI used?
Pelvic MRI is used to diagnose diseases of the pelvic organs (bladder inflammation, ureterocelles, stones, tumor / bladder cancer), changes in the uterus (myomas, uterine cancer, endometriosis), changes in the ovaries (ovarian cysts, ovarian cancer, piosalpinx, hematosalpinks, polycystic ovaries), prostate gland (benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostate cancer, inflammation of the prostate), testis (orchitis, testicular torsion, hydrocele, varicocele), lymph nodes (NHL non Hodgkin lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma, metastasis).
