Physicians & Specialists Performing Mri For Mesothelioma, Lung Cancer & Asbestosis Patients
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan produces an image with magnets and radio waves. It assists doctors in identifying tumors earlier than CT scans and x-rays. It is a useful technique to determine if pleural mesothelioma has spread and invaded other local structures and helps doctors determine the stage of the cancer. The scanning is not painful although some patients complained of nausea, dizziness or brief flashes of light.
