Adenomyosis: A Sonographic Diagnosis.

Radiographics 2018 Sep-Oct;38(5):1576-1589

From the Department of Radiology, Einstein Healthcare Network, 5501 Old York Rd, Philadelphia, PA 19141.

Adenomyosis is a common benign uterine condition and a frequent cause of pelvic pain in premenopausal women. Transvaginal US is now considered the primary imaging modality for the diagnosis of adenomyosis, and thus radiologists should be familiar with its sonographic appearance. US findings can be divided into three categories, which parallel the histology of adenomyosis: (a) ectopic endometrial glands and stroma, (b) muscular hyperplasia/hypertrophy, and (c) increased vascularity.

Transient uterine contractions as a potential pathology mimic on premenopausal pelvic MRI and the role of routine repeat T2 sagittal images to improve observer confidence.

J Med Imaging Radiat Oncol 2018 Oct 19;62(5):649-653. Epub 2018 Jun 19.

Benson Radiology, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

Introduction: Pelvic MRI has an increasingly important role in the evaluation of non-malignant uterine pathology including uterine leiomyomas, adenomyosis and endometriosis. Normal physiological myometrial junctional zone transient contractions can also be identified on MRI and have the potential to act as pathology mimics. This study aims to evaluate both the incidence of visible physiological contractions in premenopausal female pelvic MRI and also to support the routine acquisition of a repeat T2 sagittal sequence to differentiate transient physiological contractions from true underlying pathology and therefore improve observer confidence.

Functional magnetic resonance imaging for clinical evaluation of uterine contractility.

Einstein (Sao Paulo) 2018 23;16(1):eMD3863. Epub 2018 Apr 23.

Universidade Federal de São Paulo, São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Uterine contractility out of the gestational phase, during the menstrual cycle and the habitual functional variations of the organ, this is one of the responsible mechanisms for reproduction and fertility, due to its direct action in the mechanisms conducting the spermatozoa to the ovule and in the decidual implantation. Pathologies such as uterine leiomyoma, endometriosis, adenomyosis, polycystic ovarian syndrome, as well as the use of intrauterine devices and oral contraceptives, may alter a functionality of uterine contractility. Thus, magnetic resonance imaging with ultrafast sequences provides a dynamic evaluation (cine-MRI) and thus the correlation of uterine contractility quality in patients with current infertility or pathologies.

Symptoms and classification of uterine adenomyosis, including the place of hysteroscopy in diagnosis.

Fertil Steril 2018 03;109(3):380-388.e1

Leuven Institute for Fertility & Embryology, Leuven, Belgium; Life Expert Centre, Schipvaartstraat 4, Leuven, Belgium.

Where histology used the presence of glands and/or stroma in the myometrium as pathognomonic for adenomyosis, imaging uses the appearance of the myometrium, the presence of striations, related to the presence of endometrial tissue within the myometrium, the presence of intramyometrial cystic structures and the size and asymmetry of the uterus to identify adenomyosis. Preliminary reports show a good correlation between the features detected by imaging and the histological findings. Symptoms associated with adenomyosis are abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain (dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia), and impaired reproduction. Read More

Endometriosis is difficult to diagnose clinically. Transvaginal sonography (TVS) is a procedure that is known to be operator-dependent, which mean that published evidences has to be balanced with the level of the sonographer that produced the data. The objective of this publication was to assess the performances of the sonography in the diagnosis of endometriosis in order to establish the French national recommendations. Read More

Introduction: Uterine adenomyosis, another enigmatic disease of our time.

Fertil Steril 2018 03 8;109(3):369-370. Epub 2018 Mar 8.

Pôle de Gynécologie Institut de Recherche Expérimentale et Clinique (IREC), Université Catholique de Louvain, Brussels, Belgium; Gynecology Department, Cliniques Universitaires Saint Luc, Brussels, Belgium.

Like endometriosis, uterine adenomyosis is another enigmatic disease and remains a source of controversy. Uterine adenomyosis is characterized by the presence of endometrial glands in the myometrium. Two main theories may explain its pathogenesis: adenomyosis may arise from invagination of the myometrial basalis into the myometrium; or an alternative theory maintains that it may result from metaplasia of displaced embryonic pluripotent müllerian remants or differentiation of adult stem cells.

Magnetic resonance imaging of degeneration of uterine adenomyosis during pregnancy and post-partum period.

J Obstet Gynaecol Res 2018 Jun 8;44(6):1169-1173. Epub 2018 Mar 8.

Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Jichi Medical University, Shimotsuke-shi, Japan.

Degeneration of adenomyosis during pregnancy and the post-partum period is very rare. A 42-year-old Japanese parous woman with four normal-term deliveries, who presented with abdominal pain and fever at 22 weeks of gestation with transient increases of the white blood cell count and C-reactive protein, demonstrated sustained inflammation after cesarean section at 29 weeks of gestation due to the occurrence of gestational hypertension with late deceleration. The noncontrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 22 weeks demonstrated a poorly demarcated hypointense area at the posterior uterine wall on T1- and T2-weighted imaging. Read More

ESHRE/ESGE female genital tract anomalies classification system-the potential impact of discarding arcuate uterus on clinical practice.

Hum Reprod 2018 04;33(4):600-606

Institute for Women's Health, University College Hospital, 250 Euston Road, London NW1 6BU, UK.

Study Question: What would be a potential impact of implementing the new ESHRE/European Society of Gynaecological Endoscopy (ESGE) female genital anomalies classification system on the management of women with previous diagnosis of arcuate uteri based on the modified American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) criteria?

Summary Answer: A significant number of women with previous diagnosis of arcuate uteri are reclassified as having partial septate uteri according to the new ESHRE/ESGE classification system which may increase the number of remedial surgical procedures.

What Is Known Already: The ESHRE/ESGE classification system has defined measurement techniques, reference points and specific cut-offs to facilitate the differentiation between normal and septate uteri. These criteria have been arbitrarily defined and they rely on the measurement of uterine wall thickness and depth of distortion of uterine fundus. Read More

Ultrasonography of uterine leiomyomas.

Prz Menopauzalny 2017 Dec 30;16(4):113-117. Epub 2017 Dec 30.

3 Chair and Department of Gynaecology, Medical University, Lublin, Poland.

Uterine leiomyomas or uterine fibroids are the most common gynaecological tumours and occur in about 20-50% of women around the world. Ultrasonography (USG) is the first-line imaging examination in suspected fibroids and shows high sensitivity and specificity in diagnosing this condition. Ultrasound scans can be performed transvaginally (transvaginal scan - TVS) or transabdominally (transabdominal scan - TAS); both scans have advantages and limitations, but, in general, transvaginal sonography is superior to transabdominal sonography in most cases of pelvic pathology.

Endovascular uterine artery interventions.

Indian J Radiol Imaging 2017 Oct-Dec;27(4):488-495

Department of Radiology, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India.

Percutaneous vascular embolization plays an important role in the management of various gynecologic and obstetric abnormalities. Transcatheter embolization is a minimally invasive alternative procedure to surgery with reduced morbidity and mortality, and preserves the patient's future fertility potential. The clinical indications for transcatheter embolization are much broader and include many benign gynecologic conditions, such as fibroid, adenomyosis, and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), as well as intractable bleeding due to inoperable advanced-stage malignancies.

Transvaginal Elastosonography as an Imaging Technique for Diagnosing Adenomyosis.

Reprod Sci 2018 04 10;25(4):498-514. Epub 2018 Jan 10.

1 Department of Gynecology, Shanghai OB/GYN Hospital, Fudan University, Shanghai, China.

To test the hypothesis that the lesional stiffness as measured by transvaginal elastosonography (TVESG) correlates with the extent of fibrosis in adenomyotic (AM) lesions, and thus TVESG can be used to diagnose AM, we conducted 2 studies. The first evaluated the relationship, if any, between lesional stiffness and lesional histology in 35 women with histologically confirmed AM in comparison with tissue stiffness in 11 control myometrial (CM) and 8 uterine fibroids (UFs) tissue samples. The second validated the relationship between lesional stiffness and the severity of dysmenorrhea and the amount of menses in AM patients by recruiting 112 patients diagnosed with AM, 67 with UF, and 130 controls.
