Bladder CA-Staging


Bladder ca staging

  • a) and (b) Transaxial T2W1 of the bladder. The normal bladder muscle layer demonstrates low signal intensity

  • (arrow), the mucosa intermediate signal (crossed arrow) with high signal urine within the bladder (B)

  • and intermediate signal perivesical fat (F). In (a), the normal high signal return from the seminal

  • vesicles (S) is seen. In (b), a more cranial section, the distal ureters (U) are seen as they enter the

  • bladder (B). The vas deferens (VD) is also clearly seen.


Bladder ca staging

  • Transaxial T2W1 and (b) sagittal T2W1 through the bladder. These images demonstrate circumferential low

  • signal thickening of the bladder wall (arrows) in keeping with detrusor muscle hypertrophy due to

  • chronic bladder outlet obstruction


Bladder ca staging

  • Sagittal T2W1 and (b) fat saturation contrast-enhanced T1W1 demonstrating an enhancing tumour invading

  • the superficial bladder muscle (arrows). The intact outer bladder wall is demonstrated (open arrow).

  • The patient has benign prostatic hypertrophy (asterisk). (Courtesy of Dr. M.Haider, Princess Margaret

  • Hospital, Toronto.)


Bladder ca staging

  • Sagittal T2W1 through the bladder. There are multiple nodules of intermediate signal tumour involving the

  • superficial bladder muscle (arrows). These areas show an intact outer low signal bladder wall (crossed

  • arrows). Lying adjacent to this is abnormal intermediate signal that has extended across the full

  • thickness of the bladder wall (arrowheads) indicating T2b tumour. One of the focal areas of tumour

  • shows a deficit of the low signal bladder wall with intermediate signal extending across the whole

  • thickness of the bladder wall, with subtle extension into the perivesical tissues (open arrow), this area

  • is therefore radiologically a T3b tumour.


Bladder ca staging

  • Transaxial T1W1 and (b) transaxial T2W1 of a male patient with transitional cell carcinoma (T) of the

  • bladder demonstrating transmural extension with stranding within the perivesical fat (arrows). There

  • are also multiple serpiginous structures (open arrows) in the perivesical fat immediately adjacent to the

  • tumour, which are of intermediate signal on T1 and high signal on T2. These are perivesical vessels

  • and could be confused with extra-vesicaltumour if only the T1W sequence was assessed. The filling

  • defect within the bladder represents benign prostatic hypertrophy (arrowheads


Bladder ca staging

  • T2W1 demonstrating extension of tumour into the perivesical fat. Note the normal bladder wall

  • demonstrates low signal intensity (open arrows) while the tumour demonstrates intermediate-to-high

  • signal intensity (T), outlined by high signal urine and intermediate to high signal intensity perivesical

  • fat. The tumour is involving the right ureteric orifice and causing a right-sided hydroureter (U). Right

  • external iliac lymph node (N). Uterus (arrowhead). Rectum (R).


Bladder ca staging

  • Sagittal T2W1. There is a large bladder tumour arising from the base of the bladder and extending along the

  • postero-superior bladder wall. The tumour is extending through the posterior bladder wall and

  • perivesical fat and is invading the vagina (arrows) and lower cervix (crossed arrow). Uterus (asterisk),

  • rectum (R), symphysis pubis (S).


Bladder ca staging

  • Bladder cancer.T4a


Bladder ca staging

  • T2W1 of the bladder. There is a large bladder tumour (T) extending to the rectus sheath anteriorly

  • (arrows). There is also tumour arising in the posterior bladder (asterisks) which is not invading muscle

  • (T2 or less) but is obstructing the left ureter(U)……….T4b


Bladder ca staging

  • T3b N1 Bladder cancer.

  • Transaxial T2W1 of the bladder. There is a large intermediate signal tumour (T) involving the right anterolateral

  • bladder wall, extending into the perivesical fat. Multiple small perivesical nodes are seen

  • (arrowheads). These are noted to be of a similar signal intensity to the main bladder tumour. A right

  • internal iliac node (N) is seen with similar signal intensity to the tumour proper making it more likely

  • to be metastatic.


Bladder ca staging

  • N2 Bladder cancer.

  • Transaxial T2W1 showing bilateral metastatic obturator nodes (N). The right obturator node measures between

  • 2.0 and 5.0 cm in greatest dimension, and has an irregular margin anteriorly (arrowheads) indicating

  • extra-capsular extension.


Bladder ca staging

  • T3b N3 Bladder cancer.

  • Coronal T2W1 showing a large bladder tumour (T) extending into the perivesical fat. There is a right external

  • iliac node (N), >5.0 cm in longest dimension and of identical signal intensity to the primary tumour.


Bladder ca staging

  • M1 Bladder cancer—bone metastasis.

  • Transaxial T1W1 through the pelvis showing an intermediate signal mass (M) In the body of the sacrum due to a

  • bone metastasis from the patient’s transitional cell bladder tumour.
