It elicits an isosignal to the myometrium on T1 and T2 with a heterogeneous enhancement on postcontrast sequences with restricted diffusion. No extension to the posterior wall of the urinary bladder or the anterior wall of the rectum. Right pelvic lymphadenopathies are noted.
Retroflexed uterus with intramural leiomyoma (5.5 x 4.8 x 4 cm).
No distant metastases or para-aortic lymphadenopathy seen on CT (not shown).
