[Fat-saturated, contrast-enhanced spin-echo sequences in the magnetic resonance tomographic diagnosis of peritoneal carcinosis].

PURPOSE To evaluate contrast-enhanced, fat-saturated spin echo sequences for the detection of peritoneal carcinosis with MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS 61 patients, 35 with and 26 without peritoneal carcinosis, were examined with abdominal MRI. Fat-saturated, T1-weighted spin echo sequences were performed before and after administration of Gd-DTPA. In… CONTINUE READING
