MRI Examination, Image, Abdominal

Small intestine and abdominal organs

The intestinal tract and surrounding organs can quickly and easily be examined thanks to modern imaging techniques.

Examination of the small intestine

A study of the small intestine using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is used primarily for the detection or investigation of inflammatory lesions and tumours in case of undiagnosed upper abdominal pain. The examination is painless and without any radiation since X-rays are not used for generating images.

Examination of abdominal organs

Abdominal organs such as the liver, billiary tract and pancreas, can also be assessed well with the help of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). One example of this is, if it is suspected that there are stones or strictures (narrowing) in the bile ducts or pancreatic duct, then these can be identified and accurately located without the use of contrast media. Another strength of MRI and CT is the representation of the kidneys, including the urinary tract.

Examination of the colon by means of virtual colonoscopy

The colon can be examined quickly and gently with a virtual colonoscopy. More about colon check-up with virtual colonoscopy.
