Abstract

We report a case in which MRI differentiated fibrosis from recurrent tumor, thus confirming both the conventional radiographic and CT suspicions of recurrent neoplasm. Our findings suggest that MR may be helpful in distinguishing tumor from radiation fibrosis in the previously irradiated thorax. We are investigating this possibility in other irradiated pulmonary neoplasms as well as intrathoracic lymphoma treated by radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
