7.4 mm) had 81% sensitivity and 97% specificity for prediction of post-menstrual spotting with overall accuracy was 88.7%. While scar width (> 12.8 mm) had 71% sensitivity and 97% specificity for prediction of post-menstrual spotting with overall accuracy was 83.3%. Scar volume (> 0.15 cm3) had 97% sensitivity and 100% specificity for prediction of post-menstrual spotting with overall accuracy was 98.4%. Conclusion MRI measures (CS scar volume, depth, and width) are predictors for postmenstrual spotting in patients with CS scar niche, and scar volume is the most powerful predictor."/>

From: Prediction of the relationship of cesarean section scar niche and postmenstrual spotting: is there any relation?

38 years patient, underwent 2 previous CS, last CS 3 years ago, she complained from postmenstrual spotting, the duration of the period increased from 5 to 10 days since the last CS. a The black arrow points to the minimal residual myometrial thickness at the site of the scar measured the uterine cavity to the uterine serosa in mm, the white arrow points to the scar length measured as the distance of CS niche along the long axis of the uterus in mm. b The white arrowheads point to scar width measured as a distance from right to left in cm
