Preoperative Staging of Endometriosis With MRI (IDEAL)
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the value of MRI in preoperative stratification of endometriosis patients needing surgical approach by gynaecologists only or multidisciplinary approach by gynaecologists, urologists or/and abdominal surgeons.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Prospective Evaluation of the Value of Magnetic Resonance Imaging as a One-stop-shop for Preoperative Stratification of Patients With Complexe Endometriosis - Imaging Deep Endometriosis Assessment Versus Laparoscopy.|
- Odds of changed surgical approach in deep endometriosis based on preoperative MRI findings. [ Time Frame: All the imaging findings will be checked during a laparoscopy the latest 80 weeks after the imaging examinations. ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]All endometriosis lesions found on MRI will be checked during laparoscopy in order to determine how the MRI findings might have changed the decision to do a surgical approach by gynaecologists only or multidisciplinary approach by gynaecologists, urologists or/and abdominal surgeons, and this compared to the conventional preoperative imaging approach (double contrast barium enema, intravenous urography and ultrasound.
