In brief: Tumors

Any kind of radiation is a possible cause for anything kind of tumors.
Mri doesn't have radiation. Uses magnetic waves for imaging.

Theoretically any kind of radiation could be associated with any tumor, however in practice certain tumors are more commonly encountered. For instance breast cancer is more commonly seen in women treated with radiation for TB. See www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12852471
