MRI is not indicated for the diagnosis of urinary incontinence but may be helpful to detect pelvic organ prolapse and anatomical defects. Findings on MRI suggestive of urinary incontinence include lower thicknesses of pelvic floor muscles. Shorter length of membranous urethra on MRI might be associated with higher risk of developing urinary incontinence after prostatectomy.
