Monitoring renal cryosurgery: predictors of tissue necrosis in swine.
PURPOSE To examine parameters for monitoring renal cryosurgery and correlate with histopathologic necrosis in a porcine model. Parameters include: 1) tissue temperature, 2) distance of tissue fromExpand

Lipid-based blood-pool CT imaging of the liver.
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES We have recently developed an iodinated lipid-based contrast agent capable of residing in the blood pool for extended periods of time relative to conventional water-solubleExpand

Combined hepatocyte-selective and blood-pool contrast agents for the CT detection of experimental liver tumors in rabbits.
PURPOSE To determine the imaging characteristics of a new computed tomographic (CT) contrast material with both hepatocyte-selective and blood-pool components (iodinated triglyceride (ITG)-dual)Expand

Laparoscopic cryosurgery of the kidney in the porcine model: an acute histological study.
OBJECTIVES To verify histologically whether cryosurgery of the kidney can be accomplished reproducibly without injuring adjacent structures, using a combination of ultrasound and laparoscopicExpand

Perivascular and intralesional tissue necrosis after hepatic cryoablation: results in a porcine model.
BACKGROUND Cryosurgical ablation of malignant hepatic tumors is being increasingly used for definitive treatment of metastatic colorectal and primary hepatic tumors. The lack of tumor necrosis nearExpand

Conventional color Doppler velocity sonography versus color Doppler energy sonography for the diagnosis of acute experimental torsion of the spermatic cord.
OBJECTIVE We compared color Doppler velocity sonography and color Doppler energy sonography for the diagnosis of spermatic cord torsion in a canine model and determined the degree of torsionExpand

CT depiction of experimental liver tumors: contrast enhancement with hepatocyte-selective iodinated triglyceride versus conventional techniques.
PURPOSE To compare findings at computed tomography (CT) enhanced with a hepatocyte-selective contrast agent (iodinated triglyceride) and/or iohexol and at CT during arterial portography (CTAP). Expand

Hepatic cryosurgery via minilaparotomy in a porcine model
AbstractBackground: Cryosurgery of liver lesions is becoming increasingly accepted for the ablation of liver tumors. Attempts at laparoscopic cryosurgery have been very limited and often need to beExpand

MR hysterosalpingography in a rabbit model
Our objective was to evaluate the efficacy of MR imaging as compared with conventional hysterosalpingography (HSG) for the detection of fallopian tube patency after uterine injection of contrastExpand
