Pelvic MRI: How It Takes Place
The patient is made to lie in a supine position on the couch, with a coil on the lower abdomen. Shortly before the examination, it is necessary to take a hypotonic drug (Buscopan), to reduce intestinal peristalsis and related movement artifacts. The duration of the exam is about 30 minutes.
Pelvic MRI: When To Perform It
The examination is generally requested by a specialist doctor and is particularly useful in the following cases:
- Re-evaluation after chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
- Investigation on tumor recurrence.
- Staging of tumors of the rectum-sigmoid gland, uterus, uterine cervix, ovaries, and prostate.
- Evaluation of perianal and perirectal fistulas, uterine fibroids and adenomyosis, ovarian masses (benign or malignant), endometriosis and prostatitis.
