Abstract

Objective: In this article, we provide an updated review on the role of imaging in initial staging, treatment monitoring, and follow-up of cervical cancer with a focus on the role of MRI and FDG PET/CT. In addition, the 2018 International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics staging system and its implication on management of cervical cancer are explored. Conclusion: Imaging plays a major role in treatment planning and as a prognostic indicator in patients with cervical cancer. MRI and PET/CT have complementary roles: MRI is essential for the local staging of the primary tumor, and PET/CT is the most useful modality for detecting regional nodal and distant metastases.
