Patients over 50 years old with intrauterine low density on enhanced computed tomography were analyzed. Uterine volume and volume of intrauterine low density were calculated. Intrauterine low density was expressed as a percent of uterine volume. At 1-year follow-up, 23 (63.9%) had uterine malignancy and 13 (36.2%) had benign findings. All patients whose intrauterine low density exceeded 35% of the total uterine volume had a malignancy (p < 0.001). If intrauterine low density exceeds 35% of uterine volume, evaluation of uterine malignancy should be performed regardless of symptoms.
