Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this question

I'm very sorry about this diagnosis

A liver MRI is just like a CAT scan except the tunnel is much smaller and an MRI uses magnets to make a picture

Your MRI will be with contrast just like most CAT scans.

They will inject dye then take the picture. So basically it's similar to a CAT scan
