Background: The deep infiltrating form of endometriosis, with invasion >5 mm into subperitoneal tissues, is often difficult to evaluate both by surgical exploration and many imaging modalities. MRI is useful for evaluating endometriosis, and susceptibility-weighted imaging has been proposed to potentially augment the usefulness of MRI. Objective: To compare findings of deep infiltrating endometriosis at MRI and susceptibility-weighted imaging with laparoscopic results. Design: Pros more...
