Abstract

Structured reporting systems for endometriotic disease are gaining a central role in diagnostic imaging: our aim is to evaluate applicability and the feasibility of the recent ENZIAN score (2020) assessed by MRI. A total of 60 patients with suspected tubo–ovarian/deep endometriosis were retrospectively included in our study according to the following criteria: availability of MR examination; histopathological results from laparoscopic or surgical treatment; patients were not assuming estro-progestin or progestin therapy. Three different readers (radiologists with 2-, 5-, and 20-years of experience in pelvic imaging) have separately assigned a score according to the ENZIAN score (revised 2020) for all lesions detected by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Our study showed a high interobserver agreement and feasibility of the recent ENZIAN score applied to MRI; on the other hand, our experience highlighted some limitations mainly due to MRI’s inability to assess tubal patency and mobility, as required by the recent score (2020). In view of the limitations which arose from our study, we propose a modified MRI-ENZIAN score that provides a complete structured reporting system, more suitable for MRI. The high interobserver agreement of the recent ENZIAN score applied to MRI confirms its validity as a complete staging system for endometriosis, offering a shared language between radiologists and surgeons.
