Abstract :

 INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the role of MRI in carcinoma cervix with respect to extent, staging and correlation of the same with clinical FIGO staging and the histopathological diagnosis. METHODS: The study was a prospective study conducted on 40 patients with symptoms and signs of carcinoma cervix. RESULTS: MRI as a single imaging modality is superior in staging of carcinoma cervix with better assessment  of lymph nodal status, parametrial extension , bladder ,ureter and bowel involvement when compared to FIGO staging. In cases of tumour recurrence also, MRI plays a substantial role.CONCLUSION :MRI is the imaging modality of choice and preferred modality for staging of primary cervical cancer over FIGO staging .FIGO is ineffective in predicting the accurate stage and extent of disease often underestimating /overestimating it  when compared to MRI .Therefore we propose that MRI as a single imaging modality in evaluation of carcinoma cervix has a distinct edge over FIGO staging .
