We compared a conventional MR imaging protocol to a streamlined 10-minute protocol comprised of a single plane of T2 with fat saturation and a high-resolution, free-breathing, post-contrast 3D SPGR sequence in evaluating 19 patients with cervical or endometrial carcinoma. Two readers assessed imaging findings and assigned confidence scores. The high-resolution, post-contrast 3D SPGR sequence did not result in significantly different diagnoses or confidence scores compared to a conventional protocol, and can greatly reduce total scan time from 30-40 min to ~10 min.
