What is Body MRI?
Body MRI uses state-of-the-art imaging to concentrate on conditions affecting the organs from your neck down to your pelvis. This includes the lungs, liver, stomach, spine, pelvis, kidneys, colon, pancreas, and all portions of the abdomen. MRI is an invaluable tool for body imaging because of its sensitivity to soft tissue, allowing us to visualize organs in great detail. Also, there is no ionizing radiation used during an MRI scan.
Why Might an Abdominal MRI be Performed?
We utilize MRI to diagnose and monitor treatments for many conditions in the abdomen, pelvis
and chest, such as tumors. We routinely image the liver for cirrhosis, and digestive tract for
ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.
A body MRI can help show how well a treatment for a disease is working and can help in
preparing the best treatment plan. It may also be used to guide the needle during a biopsy
procedure, and is used for presurgical planning.
