Depends: It would depend on the type and stage of cancer. Some stomach cancers spread superficially through the mucosa and may not be detectable by MRI. Biopsy and examination of the tissue by a pathologist is the gold standard.

Yes: MRI is one of the best imaging tools for detecting soft tissue masses such as tumors and cancerous products. An MRI can be used anywhere in the body.
