Abstract

In addition to being a non-ionising method of imaging, nuclear magnetic resonance has the ability to demonstrate the body organs using different radio pulse sequences in order to highlight different tissues. Neuroblastomas are best demonstrated using proton spin lattice relaxation time (T1) weighted images such as inversion recovery or calculated T1, rather than proton density. The ability to produce sections in the sagittal and coronal as well as the axial plane allows for accurate tumour localisation and management planning. The appearances of primary neuroblastoma and metastatic spread to bone are described in three cases of neuroblastoma.
