Diagnosing Pheochromocytoma

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
An MRI is a procedure that uses a magnet, radio waves, and a computer to make a series of detailed pictures of areas inside the body. This procedure is also called nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (NMRI).
An MIBG (short for metaiodobenzylguanidine) scan is a test that helps your doctor locate and diagnose certain types of tumors in your body, such as a pheochromocytoma. For this scan, you will be given a compound containing a small amount of radioactive material. You will then return for a scan about 24, 48, and possibly 72 hours later.
