In brief: Yes

Yes, you bet they can .
Not much an MRI can't see. Magnetic Resonance Imaging is one of the most sophisticated and powerful imaging and diagnostic modalities that a radiologist has at his or her disposal. For certain things, CT reconstruction may be better but MRI is an excellent tool. Be more specific for a more specific answer. Do you mean the mediastinum, thorax, or muscles/chest wall?
