Whole-body MRI Takes Less Than 20 Min To Scan A Patient's Entire Body For Cancer Spread To Bone

metastasis in the internal organs.

For that study, the researchers scanned 120 patients using both whole-body MRI and whole-body FDG-PET. Similar to the Italian study, the whole-body MRI procedure took about 15 minutes total room time. They found that whole-body MRI detected 35 bone metastases, whereas whole-body FDG-PET discovered only 26. But MRI could only detect 63 of 68 lymph nodes, 15 of 19 soft-tissue tumors and 23 of 28 metastases in the internal organs, numbers below the detection rate of FDG-PET.

“In our experience, the combination of these two methods is the future in primary and recurrent tumor detection and staging,?said Nadir Ghanem, MD, lead researcher on the German study.

Dr. Ghanem will present the full results of the study on May 17 during the American Roentgen Ray Society Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA.
