PURPOSE A prospective study of the diagnostic accuracy and image quality of two MRI systems in the detection of renal tumors was investigated. MATERIALS AND METHODS 34 patients with the clinical suspicion of a space-occupying renal lesion were examined by MRI with a low field (0.2 Tesla magnet) and a high field (1.5 Tesla magnet) for comparison. An "informed" and a "blind" observer evaluated all of the MR images. In addition, the signal-to-noise and contrast-to-noise ratios were evaluated as… Expand
