Our institutional review board approved this HIPAAcompliant retrospective study. A waiver of the requirement to obtain informed consent was obtained. Patient Population The IR clinic database was searched for all patients evaluated for possible UAE from January 1, 2009 to July 17, 2012. Using clinic notes and intake questionnaires, subjects seen for UAE were divided into two groups: a self-referred population (group A, n ¼ 203; mean age, 41.8 years; range, 22-58 years) and a physician-referred population (group B, n ¼ 98; mean age, 42.9 years; range, 30-65 years). During the time frame of our study, our hospital-based IR department engaged in direct marketing of UAE for treatment of symptomatic leiomyomas, including television interviews and radio advertisements, seminars, and fliers. As a result of direct marketing, patients directly contacted the IR clinic without physician referrals. During these telephone calls, patients were screened by nurses for potential contraindications to UAE, including known gynecologic malignancy, current pregnancy or desire to maintain fertility, active pelvic inflammatory disease, severe iodinated contrast allergy, and stages 4 and 5 chronic kidney disease . After this initial screening, patients were scheduled for appointments with interventional radiologists to discuss different treatment strategies for symptomatic uterine leiomyomas and to help patients determine if they should proceed with UAE. During the same time period, our IR department accepted referrals from gynecologists and primary care physicians who, on the basis of clinical assessment and/or prior imaging, believed that their patients would benefit from UAE. Chart Review The clinic charts and hospital electronic medical records were reviewed for presenting symptoms and to see whether patients underwent UAE. In addition, the MRI reports were reviewed for incidental MRI findings and recommendations. The majority of subjects in both groups presented with multiple symptoms: 77.8% (158 of 203) of group A and 75.5% (74 of 98) of group B, with at least one symptom being bleeding, bulk related, or pain. A single presenting symptom of bleeding (group A, 13.8% [28 of 203]; group B, 14.3% [14 of 98]), pain (group A, 3.4% [7 of 203]; group B, 5.1% [5 of 98]), or bulk-related symptoms (group A, 3.9% [8 of 203]; group B, 2.0% [2 of 98]) was also similar between groups. One subject in group A and two subjects in group B were asymptomatic, and one subject in each group presented with a symptom other than the three major symptoms discussed above. MRI Technique Imaging was performed on either a 1.5-T or a 3-T MRI system (GE Healthcare, Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Siemens Medical Solutions, Erlangen, Germany). Imaging was performed with the patient supine, using a phased-array body coil centered over the pelvis. A single-shot turbo/ fast spin-echo sequence was obtained in the coronal plane, followed by axial dual gradient-echo T1-weighted (in-phase and opposed-phase) imaging. High-resolution T2-weighted images were obtained in the sagittal and axial planes. Fat-suppressed T2-weighted images were obtained in the axial plane. After the intravenous administration of a gadolinium-based contrast agent, dynamic contrast-enhanced T1-weighted imaging was performed in the coronal plane, and delayed axial and sagittal T1-weighted images were obtained.
