:Home Positional pelvic organ prolapse (POP) evaluation using open magnetic resonance imaging (MRO)
Published On: 20-05-2014Categories: Technical Papers

The pelvic floor is a complex 3D support structure for the pelvic organs, which depends on the interplay between the fascia, ligaments and the levator ani muscles. The most commonly used method for prolapse staging is the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POP-Q), which is scored in the supine position during physical examination. A recognized limitation of this exam is the scoring of the pelvic organs in the supine position. The objective of this pilot studyis to evaluate the change of prolapse using open standing MRI (MRO) comparing lying, sitting and standing images in women with POP and without (controls).
