This study attempted to use parameters derived from DCE-MRI to quatitatively investigate the perfusion difference between adenocarcinoma of endometrium and cervix. It was concluded that values of kinetic parameters were lower in uterine endometrioid adenocarcinoma (EAC) and adenocarcinoma of cervix (AdC). When encountered uterine adenocarcinoma with uncertain biopsy pathology and a confusing morphology of MRI, DCE-MRI would be a reliable supplementary method to improve diagnostic confidence.
