  • Description:
  • Our study was designed to determine the accuracy of MRI in this staging process. We excluded patients who underwent preoperative radiation therapy because this may confound interpretation of the MRI for the purpose of this study. Additionally, we have attempted to resolve a significant criticism of similar studies that correlated preoperative imaging with pathologic node positivity. This relates to the question of whether the lymph node identified as being positive by the preoperative study is in fact the involved node. Initially, we attempted to identify in the operating room or immediately thereafter the specific lymph node or nodes thought to be positive by the radiologist. Subsequently, we found that sectioning the specimen according to the axial images of the MRI allowed more specific correlation between MRI images and pathologic results (Figure 1).
