MRI of the Urethra

A doctor or physician may order an MRI scan of the urinary tract to take pictures of the urethra and nearby organs. An MRI is useful because it shows healthcare providers what tissue is normal, and what tissue is not. Many organs in your body can be seen during a quality MRI of the urinary tract.

The urinary tract includes two kidneys, two ureters, a bladder, and a urethra. This MRI will be focused on the urethra, which is the tube where urine flows out of the body, located at the bottom of the bladder.

A quality MRI scan can show radiologists what may be causing your signs and symptoms and it’s important that you find the best machines and radiologists possible to receive the best imaging.

Reasons for a Urethra MRI:

A urethra MRI scan may be done to check for certain cancers or other illness. The MRI may show tissue that has cancer cells and tissue that does not have cancer cells.

A urethra MRI can be used to guide doctors or surgeons during a procedure, such as a biopsy. An MRI scan may be used if surgery is needed to remove a growth or lump.

A MRI scan of the urethra can show healthcare providers how well a treatment for a disease is working and the results of a quality MRI scan can help in the plan for the best treatment forward.

A Urethra MRI may help diagnose (find):

A MRI of the urethra may show malignant primary tumors of the female or male urethra.

A MRI of the urethra may show malignant secondary tumors to the urethra, which generally occur by direct invasion or spreading from bordering organs. This includes primary tumors originating in the prostate, rectum, penis, vagina, vulva or bladder.

A MRI of the urethra can show solid, benign urethral lesions as well, although very rare.
