The usefulness of these functions as a clinical test is discussed.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the potency of Gd-EOB-DTPA to support hepatic catheter placement in laser ablation procedures by quantifying time-dependent delineation effects for instrumentation and target tumor within liver parenchyma. Monitoring potential influence on online MR thermometry during the ablation procedure is a secondary aim. MATERIALS AND METHODS… (More)
