Anybody is using it instead of CT scans?

Heard about it and asked for more info. Email I got said it screens for over 500 cancers and diseases. Can detect earlier than other scanning techniques.

On very short review it just seems to be a full-body MRI, which has the benefit of negligible radiation dose, but isn’t the best medium for detecting some cancers and metastasis (eg lung, lymph nodes). I’m also guessing it’s not targeted enough in dosimetry and contrast etc. for some specific body parts which are most concerning for CRC metastases (eg liver). Without claiming to be an expert by any stretch, I’d be suggesting that the best surveillance protocol is one developed by your oncologist/surgeon using evidence-based guidelines, not one marketed by a private company. My surveillance routine has involved a combination of CT and PET-CT, interspersed with dedicated liver MRIs, to get the best overall coverage and sensitivity.

Might be ok if you didn’t have cancer and just wanted some peace-of-mind, but for a post-diagnosis surveillance regime where getting the right early detection can truly mean life-or-death, I wouldn’t personally be taking any chances!

You are probably correct. After further study of it and asking for more info as a CRC patient about detection of mets I haven't heard back yet. The 7T MRI is the best I have found so far that beats SOC scans but its an experimental at this time for CRC patients so its very hard to qualify. Mainly used for brain and knees, go figure.
