When combined with Doppler flow studies, it is useful not only in the evaluation of GTN but also in the evaluation of the response to treatment and in the detection of GTN recurrence. On T2-weighted images, the tumor presents a heterogeneous, hyperintense mass, with a “bunch of grapes” appearance, that distends the uterus and endometrial cavity Partial hydatidiform mole results from the fertilization of a normal egg by two sperm, resulting in a zygote with a triploid 69,XXY or 69,XXX diandric karyotype When there is cellular involvement, a chest X-ray can show multiple nodules and small, poorly defined opacities, similar to the images produced by inflammatory processes.

Clinical and radiological correlations in patients with gestational trophoblastic disease. Such abnormalities are best viewed in the second trimester. The autopsy revealed metastatic choriocarcinoma of the liver. The uterine vessels can be evaluated by determining their wave gestacionwl, peak systolic velocity, resistance index RIand pulsatility index PI.

The volume of the uterine lesion must be determined because it has an established relationship with the size of the tumor and the risk of chemoresistance Hepatic dona in gestational trophoblastic neoplasia: Surgery and radiotherapy are necessary in some patients with high-risk GTN, especially in those with chemoresistance.
