Rule out cancer : Without knowing your clinical background and history, when we see lab results of elev Alkaline phosphatase, abnormal liver function tests, we are concerned about inflammation of the liver, from many different causes: infection, alcohol hepatitis, liver failure, and even liver cancer. Your dr must be concerned about looking for lesions in the liver if she ordered an MRI. Ask her directly.
