    While I have seen some mention of MRI's being used, it seems pretty uncommon. I have no knowledge of how useful they might be for TC imaging.

      Some European countries use MRI but they are also in more centralized centers with specific protocols for the MRI and radiologists that have a lot of experience in monitoring them for retroperitoneal disease. Outside of a clinical trial I would personally rather have CT than MRI.

        Thanks guys for your feedback and information! Now I continue to wait until the next appointment where I suspect I'll be getting a CT scan. Hopefully the approval for it goes faster then the PET and I can get in sooner. Thanks again!
