We prospectively analyzed the diagnostic performance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET)/computed tomography (CT) in a large, single-institution series of locally advanced cervical cancer patients triaged to neoadjuvant treatment followed by radical surgery. Neither MRI nor PET/CT accurately detected residual disease, disallowing the option of avoiding or modulating completion surgery.
