Abdominal MRI is a noninvasive test that uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create pictures of the inside of your body. It does not use radiation (x-rays). The images can sometimes be used in addition to those obtained from CT scans. The MRI can provide excellent views of the tumor and surrounding tissues and is sometimes used to clarify findings seen on CT imaging.
