Hi,

The tuberculosis lesion suspicious can be detected in MRI scan. For confirmation of tuberculosis, a biopsy can be taken for histopathology examination.

If tuberculosis confirmed or strong suspicious in reports than anti-tuberculosis treatment can be started.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician
