Abstract

To more fully outline cervical and vaginal contours and distend the vagina, we have filled the vagina with sterile water-based gel before the magnetic resonance (MR) examination. The technique is similar to that used for defecating MR proctography and other MR examinations, but has not been well described for MR imaging of female pelvic cancer. We present our preliminary clinical experience, including a review of safety imaging characteristics and maintenance of the distention during the examination.
