This study was to investigate whether the
choline-containing compounds (Cho) obtained from
three-dimension 1H MRS with 3T system is associated with
the aggressiveness of endometrial cancer (ECa).
Thirty-eight patients with ECa and 19 patients with
benign lesions in endometria or in submucosa (BLs-ESm)
were included in this study. The ratio of sum of Cho to
sum of water (Cho/water) was the statistical unit. The
Cho/water can differentiate ECa from BLs-ESm and
differentiate type II from type I ECa, but cant
differentiate different stages ECa, as well as different
grades ECa. Cho/water increased with the increase of
tumor stage and size.
