As some of you may know, the work is not always done after one undergoes chemotherapy after cancer diagnosis. However, when one hears about getting a scan for cancer, one usually assumes it is during or before cancer diagnosis. Researchers are now learning that MRI scans are just as important after chemotherapy.
In the study published in the RSNA Journal, researchers compared CT scans with MRI scans to detect colorectal liver metastases (shorten to CRLMs) after chemotherapy treatment. The results showed that overall, MRI scans were more accurate to detection as it gave less false positives, compared to CT scans. One wonders if MRI scans may become standardized after chemotherapy? For now, researchers are still looking for more methods to fine-tune the methods.
