A chest MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan, also referred to as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), is an imaging test that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create pictures of the chest, or thoracic, area.
MR imaging of the chest is performed for the following.
A chest MRI may show a tumour, problems in the blood vessels (such as an aneurysm or blood clot), abnormal lymph nodes and other chest conditions. Currently, MRI is not considered a valuable tool for spotting or monitoring slight changes in lung tissue, since the lungs contain mostly air and are difficult to image.
