AI and MRI for Breast Cancer – Automatic segmentation improves the speed and classification accuracy for identifying breast lesions.11https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/31030291

 

Liver

Typical Symptoms

Most people do not show symptoms from early stage liver cancer. Symptoms may include losing weight without trying, loss of appetite, upper abdominal pain, nausea and vomiting, yellow discoloration of the skin/ eyes, white chalky stool.

Recent Research

MRI vs. CT and US – MRI was shown to be the best imaging modality for the detection of lesions in a high-risk population cohort when compared to CT or ultrasound.12https://pubs.rsna.org/doi/10.1148/radiol.11110157

Diagnostic Performance of MRI – MRI has a higher sensitivity and similar specificity for the detection of liver lesions when compared to CT and US.13https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1542356510009456?via%3Dihub

 

Kidney

Typical Symptoms

Signs and symptoms rarely present in the early stages of disease. In the later stages, kidney cancer may cause blood in urine, pain in the back/ side that doesn’t go away, loss of appetite, or unexplained weight loss.

Recent Research

MRI vs. CT – MRI showed similar sensitivity for the detection and staging of kidney cancer lesions as CT, and showed better specificity in both areas.14https://www.clinical-genitourinary-cancer.com/article/S1558-7673(18)30338-0/fulltext

Non-Contrast MRI – Diffusion-weighted MRI can be used to effectively characterize renal lesions.15https://pubs.rsna.org/doi/10.1148/radiol.2512080880

Pancreas

Typical Symptoms

Signs and symptoms often don’t occur until the disease is advanced. They may include pain in the upper abdomen that radiates to your back, loss of appetite, unexplained weight loss, new-onset diabetes, yellowing of skin or eyes.

Recent Research

MRI vs. Other Imaging Modalities – In a large-population, mixed-patient cohort, MRI performed identically or better than CT, PET, or ultrasound for the detection pancreatic cancer.16https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0720048X17301535?via%3Dihub

Gallbladder

Typical Symptoms

Abdominal pain/ bloating, fever, losing weight without trying, nausea, yellowing of the skin or eyes.

Recent Research

MRI vs. CT – MRI was found to be better than multidetector row CT in the diagnosis of gallbladder carcinoma.17https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30551027

Adrenal Glands

Typical Symptoms

Weight gain, muscle weakness, nausea, vomiting, back pain, fever, loss of appetite, pink or purple stretch marks on the skin, hormone changes that result in the development of opposite-gender secondary sex characteristics (women – excess facial hair, hair loss, men – enlarged breast tissue, shrinking testicles).

Recent Research

MRI vs. CT – MRI with chemical shift imaging is superior to CT in the differentiation of adrenocortical adenomas from other adrenal lesions.18https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26849154

Prostate

Typical Symptoms

Trouble urinating, decreased force of the urine stream, blood in semen, bone pain, erectile dysfunction.

MRI to Avoid Unnecessary Biopsies – Using an MRI to triage suspicious cases allows nearly 30% of patients avoid a prostate biopsy.20https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(16)32401-1/fulltext

MRI Prostate Cancer Detection Rate – The detection rate of clinically significant disease is higher with MRI than with standard “blind” biopsies.21https://synapse.koreamed.org/DOIx.php?id=10.3348/kjr.2017.18.4.597
