Computed tomographic evaluation of carcinoma of the cervix.
Radiology 1982; 142(2):439-46R

Abstract

To assess the accuracy of computed tomography (CT) in staging advanced carcinoma of the cervix, 18 staging evaluations were performed in 16 patients with locally advanced (FIGO Stage IB-IVA) cervical carcinoma. CT staging results were compared with the results of clinical staging and postoperative staging. CT was accurate in 12/18 (66%) cases, clinical staging was accurate in 10/18 (55%) cases, and clinical staging with cystoscopy was accurate in 14/18 (78%) cases. CT staging failed to detect microscopic pelvic sidewall involvement and bladder involvement when there was no contrast material in the bladder. In the detection of para-aortic lymph node involvement by tumor, there were 12 true-negative, 4 true-positive, 1 false-positive, and 1 false-negative study (sensitivity = 80%, specificity = 92%). It is concluded that CT is equal in accuracy to other clinical staging techniques and offers the advantage of visualizing the tumor, which allows for more accurate determination of radiation portals.
