Abstract

A concise review is presented of the current applications and techniques of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the field of diagnostic imaging of oncologic disease of the gastrointestinal tract, with a summary of the diagnostic possibilities of MRI in the various types of tumor pathology of the gastrointestinal tract. We conclude with a review of the specific situations in which MRI presents distinct advantages over other diagnostic imaging methods (such as computed tomography and ultrasound).
