Pancoast Tumor Topic Guide
Pancoast Tumor: Pancoast tumors are lung cancers that form at the top of the lung. They tend to spread to the chest wall rather than the lung tissue. These tumors usually respond well to treatment as long as they don't spread, or metastasize, to the lymph nodes or other systems.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a scanner that takes cross-sectional images of the body. It is used to evaluate tissues of the head, neck, chest, limbs, abdomen, and pelvis. MRI is a very safe procedure; sedation may be used for infants, small children, or adults who are claustrophobic.
