Discomfort under the ribs. Colonoscopy suggested. Is MRI better?

Hi there I have been having lots of discomfort under my left rib cage, i have had ultrasounds and a stomach scope done and nothing has been detected. I am now going for a colonoscopy. I am wondering if an MRI would have better. I have had 3 children but still feel embarresed about the situation thats why i was thinking of the MRI.

MRI appears to be a better option,because it can take care of chest as the problem lies in the left rib cage, MRI should be performed of chest & abdomen.
