Overview

Brain MRI is helpful in the detection of thrombotic events, such as ischemic stroke, in patients with acute myeloid leukemia and especially acute promyelocytic leukemia. Abdominal MRI is helpful in the detection of mesenteric thrombosis in these patients.

MRI

MRI may be helpful in the detection of anatomic abnormalities in patients with acute myeloid leukemia. However, MRI is an expensive test and should be reserved for patients in whom CT or ultrasound are nondiagnostic.
