We describe herein the use of MR fluoroscopic guidance in the drainage of abscess cavities. We percutaneously drained 12 brain abscesses in 11 patients. A 0.3T open MR imaging system was used. Sixteen drainages were performed in 12 abscesses. Repeat drainage was needed in three recurrences and one residual lesion. No serious complications were seen. MR(More)
