Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has been widely accepted as the most reliable and accurate modality for diagnosis, staging, treatment planning, and follow-up of endometrial carcinoma. MRI is the best modality to assess the uterus given its excellent soft tissue resolution and direct multiplanar capabilities. It is the only modality that demonstrates the zonal anatomy of the uterus and therefore is essential for the preoperative staging of endometrial carcinoma. The depth of myometrial invasion is the most important morphologic prognostic factor and can only be accurately assessed with MRI .
