Deep infiltrating endo and MRI

Hello lovelies!

If you have deep infiltrating endometriosis, does it usually appear on the MRI or it's not necessary? (I mean will it show how deep it is in the body tissues)

Thank you in advance xxx 💛

Hey- it will not show how deep it is but more how large and area it is on.

Hi,

I see, because my gynae told me at first she's suspecting DIE, but after seeing the MRI she said the screening shows no deep endo. Well I hope that, but I'm worried when I have my lap, they would find more than what they've expected.

My lap ended up being almost 8 hrs as the endo was more than expected but they got rid of most of it so I wouldn’t worry too much . X

It was the opposite with me. Looks like it differs from one woman to another.
