Is the MRI a reliable source to gauge size of tumor?

Hello Anon,

Yes it is. A Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. In many cases MRI gives different information about structures in the body than can be seen with an X-rayultrasound, or computed tomography (CT) scanMRI also may show problems that cannot be seen with other imaging methods.

I hope this answers your question,
