Role of MRI in Diagnosis of Urinary Bladder Carcinoma
Urinary bladder cancer is the ninth most common cancer worldwide. It is the seventh most common cancer in men and the seventeenth most common cancer in women. Bladder carcinoma is responsible for 5.6 percent of cancer cases in men and 1.8 percent of cancer cases in women in India, with a real crude rate (ACR) of 174 in men and 561 in women. A thorough review of bladder cancer cases reported between 2005 and 2010 was conducted. Since it offers high fluid-tissue contrast resolution and clearly delineates urinary bladder musculature, magnetic resonance imaging provides an excellent insight into the anatomy and physiology of the urinary bladder.
