Dynamic Pelvic
MR IMAGING

  • Dynamic Pelvic MRI utilizes static and dynamic imaging of the pelvis to assess for functional and anatomic causes of pelvic floor dysfunction. The superior soft-tissue contrast of MRI allows for a detailed evaluation of the musculature, organs, and fascia of the pelvic floor while avoiding ionizing radiation. Cine-clips allow for real-time, dynamic imaging during defecation, often revealing unsuspected or confounding causes of dysfunction.
  • Dynamic Pelvic MRI visualizes the anterior (bladder), middle (uterus, cervix, and vagina OR prostate) and posterior (rectum) compartments of the pelvis. Dynamic Pelvic MRI is useful for the assessment of: Constipation Prolapse Fecal and urinary incontinence Pelvic pain Dynamic Pelvic MRI is more sensitive than a physical exam and is the Gold Standard in diagnosing pelvic floor disorders. We perform our studies in a private room, with the utmost attention to patient comfort and modesty.
