  MR imaging is a necessary tool in the diagnosis of PFD and it provides good concordance with clinical examination.
    As abnormalities of the three pelvic compartments are frequently associated, so a complete survey of the entire pelvis is necessary before surgical repair.
  Static MR Imaging can be also useful to identify the defects responsible for pelvic organ prolapse and stress urinary incontinence, and so help perform site specific repair in surgery, to avoid the high recurrence rates.
   Findings reported at dynamic MR imaging of the pelvic floor are valuable for selecting candidates for surgical treatment and for indicating the most appropriate surgical approach(Fig.23).
  The concordance of dynamic MR Imaging findings with clinical examination in the staging of pelvic organ prolapse is generally good in this study, yet non significant agreement regarding anterior and superior compartment prolapse was found.
