This study investigated the feasibility of an accelerated T2-mapping sequence to evaluate cervical cancer (CC) pathological type, grade, stage and lymphovascular space invasion (LVSI) status. The results showed that quantitative T2 values can effectively grade and predict the CC LVSI status, and the ADC values can stratify CC grading. The synthetic T2-weighted (T2W) images showed comparable staging accuracy to the morphological T2W images acquired by a conventional sequence. This suggests that this accelerated T2-mapping sequence may facilitate CC staging and grading. Quantitative T2 values may be superior to ADC values in predicting the LVSI status of CC.
