The abstract states that people with cushings who did not have a pit tumor show up on a 1.5 T MRI, should have an MRI on a 3T machine as it's likely to show a tumor. Basically the difference between these types of MRI machines is how "thin" the slices of the pictures are. Honestly I think the reason most reserach states that pit tumors only show up on MRI's like 40% of the time is because the original 1.5T machines were designed for "organs" not "glands". Might as well start out with a 3T MRI cause the price is the same. 3T MRI's for cushings patients Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
