This study aimed to investigate the feasibility of T2 mapping in differentiating endometrial cancer (ECA) from benign endometrial lesions (BEL), as well as to evaluate the histopathological stages, grades and types of ECA.We measured the mean T2 values of 51 endometrial cancer,12 benign endometrial lesions and 23 normal endometrium of volunteers.We found the mean T2 values were signifcantly different among ECA, BEL and normal volunteers, and could be used to distinguish different types of ECA, but could not distinguish different stages or grades of ECA.
