In brief: CT is

generally not used for diagnosis or staging of endometrial cancer, however endometrial can be detected on a contrast enhanced scan.
Ultrasound is more useful for initial imaging, and if additional imaging is necessary, MRI is superior to CT.

In brief: Endometrial cancer

A CT scan would not be a reliable test for endometrial cancer.
The sampling of the endometrial lining will be much more accurate.
