The preoperative clinical and radiologic findings and staging were compared with the operative and pathological findings and surgical staging in 62 consecutive patients with endometrial carcinoma. Overall, the tumor grade was changed in 33.8% of the patients, and the histologic type of tumor was changed in 27.4% of the patients. The preoperative clinical staging was changed in 51% of the patients after surgery. The change for the stage was as follows: Stage I, 30.4%; stage II, 62.5%, stage III, 60%; and stage IV, 0%. The endocervical curettage was found to have a 50% falsepositive rate and a 13% false-negative rate.
