Ultra-high-field MRI in cervical cancer imaging

High-resolution T2-weighted cervical cancer imaging on an ultra-high-field 7.0-T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system using an endorectal antenna of 4.7-mm thickness was examined to find out how feasible this technique is.

Key Points:

• High resolution T2-weighted 7.0-T MRI of the inner female pelvis is challenging
• We demonstrate a feasible approach for T2-weighted 7.0-T MRI of cervical cancer
• An endorectal monopole receive antenna is well tolerated by participants
• The endorectal antenna did not lead to adverse events or session discontinuation
