Core Tip With the past improvements on magnetic resonance hardware, gradients and advanced sequences, the interest of magnetic resonance application in the chest is exponentially growing. In this review, we show the evidence in the literature of its application in mediastinal malignancies. In addition, we explore the advantages of applying new imaging techniques for lesion characterization, helping to differentiate with acuity benign and malignant etiologies. The use of several advanced sequences together yields specificity in identifying false positives from 18F-Fluorodeoxiglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography. Also, due to its precision in defining invasion and variation in tissue properties through the time, magnetic resonance enhances accurate staging and treatment monitoring.
