Sometimes, MRI examinations required Gadolinium chelating agent injection into the vein depending on the radiologists and physicians’ consideration. The benefits of the injection are as follows:
- To see the abnormality more clearly
- To distinguish the abnormality if it results from inflammation, tumor, cancer, or other causes
- To examine the veins
Yes. According to the research by Doctor Cheng and his team from Taiwan, MRI examinations can detect abnormality in 1,978 patients without symptom. It is found that MRI can detect tumor with the smallest size of 0.4 millimeters.
For MRI in certain parts (e.g., brain, back, upper abdomen, or lower abdomen), it takes about 30 minutes. For Whole Body Check Up program, it takes about 1 hour.
