Introduction: Cervical cancer is a common disease with significant mortality and morbidity. Objectives: The main objective of the study is to analyse the degree of agreement between MRI and histopathology in T staging of cervical carcinoma. Material and methods: This descriptive study was conducted in Health Department Punjab during 2019. Sample size of 100 cases was calculated with 95% confidence level, 8% margin of error and taking expected percentage of agreement i.e 80.9% between MRI and histopathology for T-staging of cervical carcinoma. Informed consent was taken from the patients. Results: The data was collected from 100 patients. The mean age of the patients was 46.45±13.38 years with minimum and maximum ages of 25 & 70 years respectively. In this study the MRI report diagnosed stage T-1 in 32(32%) patients, T-2 stage was diagnosed in 24(24%) patients, T-3 stage diagnosed in 18(18%) patients and T-4 stage diagnosed by MRI in 26(26%) patients. Conclusion: It is concluded that MRI had good agreement with histopathology in T staging of cervical carcinoma.
