Endometrial polyps (EP) is a common disease of uterine body, with a prevalence rate of about 8~25% in female population. Its clinical symptoms can be like those of endometrial carcinoma (EC), with vaginal bleeding, but there are obvious differences in prognosis and treatment between them. The purpose of this study is to investigate the value of differential diagnosis for staging Ia EC and EP by using amide proton transfer (APT) and diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI). It shows that APT and DKI can be used to distinguish between stage Ia EC and EP. effectively and quantitatively
