Static and Dynamic Pelvic Floor Protocols

Associate Professor Benjamin Henninger, M.D. (Medical University of Innsbruck, Austria) shares his protocols for pelvic floor MRI.
Following the recently published recommendations of the ESUR and ESGAR Pelvic Floor Working Group1, imaging protocols have been developed for the static and dynamic imaging of the pelvic floor with MRI. The protocols consist of static and dynamic MRI sequences, where dynamic means imaging during straining, squeezing and during evacuation or defecation.
Based on an extensive literature review and analysis and of expert consensus, these proposed recommendations can be used as guidance for standardized MR imaging for pelvic floor dysfunction. Protocols have been developed for 1.5T MAGNETOM Avantofit using software version syngo MR E11.
