In this diagnostic procedure, the provider performs a magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, study of the chest without using contrast material. He then follows with contrast material and takes more images. An MRI of the chest helps to detect diseases of internal organs like hilar or mediastinal lymphadenopathy, an enlargement of the lymph nodes in the hilar or lung roots, or in the mediastinum between the lungs.
