Magnetic resonance imaging is usefully employed on its own or with complementary technologies to evaluate stage and other characteristics for a range of specific tumour types. These include tumours of the central nervous system, head and neck, breast, prostate and colo-rectum, as well as gynaecological and musculoskeletal malignancies. For each tumour type, optimal usage of magnetic resonance imaging involves particularities of tumour type and various other characteristics. For most tumour categories, there are scenarios in which magnetic resonance imaging has only limited application.
