abstract

  • Uterine MMMT most commonly presents as an intracavitary mass with coexistent dilatation of the endometrial canal. Tumors tend to appear hyperechoic on sonography, heterogeneously hypodense and ill defined on contrast-enhanced CT, and heterogeneously hyperintense on T2-weighted MR images with signal abnormalities indicating subacute hemorrhage on T1-weighted MR images. Myometrial invasion is common and has a predilection for the uterine fundus.
