Keywords: uterus anomalies, magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasonography, sensitivity, specificity, accuracy.


The article analyzes the reliability of the results of magnetic resonance imaging in the diagnosis of uterine malformations on the basis of examination of 32 patients, assessment of the specificity, sensitivity and accuracy of the method. These data indicate that MRI is a highly informative diagnostic method, which can be successfully used for verification female genital abnormalities in patients with impaired reproductive health.
