Placenta Percreta

Low-lying anterior placenta percreta in a 32-year-old woman at 34 weeks of gestation.

  • A, B - Coronal and axial T2 HASTE MR images show a heterogeneous placenta with thick, dark intraplacental bands (black arrows). Focal interruption of the left inferolateral myometrium and subserosal extension of placental tissue (white arrows).
  • C, D - Sagittal T2 HASTE and T2 fast spin echo (FSE) MR images show focal interruption of anterior myometrium (black arrowheads), anterosuperior to the internal os and extending subserosally (white arrowheads). Marked heterogeneity of the anterior myometrium, just superior to the invasion noted, represents abnormal vascularity (arrow).
