CT findings in endometrial cancer include:

  • Relatively hypo-attenuated mass in the region of the endometrial cavity which may show uniform attenuation or may be heterogeneous, with or without a contrast-enhanced component

  • Polypoid mass surrounded by endometrial fluid

  • Heterogeneous soft-tissue mass/masses and fluid expanding the endometrial cavity

  • Tumor involving multiple regions of the endometrium or the entire endometrial surface

  • Fluid-filled uterine cavity marginated by mural tumor implants

  • Fluid-filled uterine cavity secondary to obstruction of the endocervical canal by tumor that is not depicted or delineated clearly.
