WHY IS MRI NECESSARY IN ALL FIBROID PATIENTS?

Fibroids are generally diagnosed with ultrasound. However, ultrasound may not show all the fibroids, and is not reliable in the determination of their location (e.g. submucosal, subserosal or intramural). MRI not only shows fibroids and their location much more accurately, but also demonstrate coexisting pathologies such as adenomyosis etc. better than ultrasound.
