Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed in seven patients with fibrosing mediastinitis. Comparison was made in each case to standard chest radiography and computed tomography (CT). Angiography was performed in three cases. Although MRI and CT were found to be equivalent in defining the extent of adenopathy, CT was superior at demonstrating calcifications, often important in making the diagnosis of fibrosing mediastinitis. MRI, however, offered complementary information, particularly in… CONTINUE READING
