Serous-papillary carcinoma of the endometrium. Usefulness and limitations of computerized tomography

, : Serous-papillary carcinoma of the endometrium. Usefulness and limitations of computerized tomography. La Radiologia Medica 72(11): 826-830

The staging of endometrial carcinoma and the evaluation of tumor recurrences take advantage from Computerized Tomography (CT). The CT appearances are described of six new cases and two recurrences of uterine papillary serous carcinoma (UPSC), which is a particularly aggressive and rare form of endometrial carcinoma. CT has been scarcely useful in first clinical stages, while in advanced stage and when the tumor appears as a pelvic mass CT has allowed to recognize the uterine origin, to define the involvement of surrounding tissue and to depict the extrauterine spread patterns. CT has been extremely useful in the evaluation and in the search for tumor recurrences.
