What happened to pelvic MRI to detect DIE pre-op? A comparison between the expert versus the general radiologist

Kathy Huang, MD

 

Thank you for inviting me here to have an opportunity to present our research. We have been looking at MRIs as a diagnostic tool. I started at NYU probably 18 months ago.

 

Initially, when I first came along we were talking about whether we should use ultrasound. Obviously clinical examination is very important; however, we do not have ultrasonographers that were trained for this and we have an awesome MRI department because our MRI department apparently has been around forever and they have always used…imaging. I started talking to our radiologist because we started to have more and more endometriosis patients and even before I moved to NYU we had several patients who had rectovaginal endometriosis or bowel endometriosis that we did not recognize before surgery so intra-operatively we are finding these lesions. Because I did not consent them for bowel resection or nodule removal we really could not complete it, we had to bring the patients back for a second time, which is really a…

    Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well.…

    Dr. Seckin and his staff spared me from years and years of heavy periods and unbearable endometriosis pain. After having surgery with him (my first) I can now function like a regular human. No more eating NSAIDs like candy and calling out sick from work. Thank you, Dr. Seckin!

    I underwent surgery with Dr. Seckin in 2017 and have felt like a new woman ever since. If you have, or suspect you have endometriosis, Dr. Seckin and his compassionate team of surgeons and staff are a must-see.
