The actual role that MR imaging can play in detection of adenopathies in different body sites has been evaluated in 54 oncologic patients with pathologic nodes already seen with other methods. Enlarged lymph-nodes seen by CT or ultrasound were all visible by MR as well. Relaxation times of pathologic tissue (T1-T2) were calculated at a 0,5 magnetic field: it's our opinion that at present it's not already possible to state the capability of MR to distinguish different pathologic tissues.
