Cervical cancer with bladder invasion is rare and carries a poor prognosis. MR imaging is useful in the detection of bladder mucosal involvement from cervical cancer, with reported high negative predictive value, and therefore can serve to justify the necessities of invasive cystoscopy. Diffusion-weighted imaging is superior to T2-weighted and contrast-enhanced MR study in accurately diagnosing bladder invasion.
