PURPOSE Comparative evaluation of specimens obtained with different MR-compatible biopsy systems and a conventional ferromagnetic system. METHODS Biopsies of a pig liver were performed post-mortem with three different MR-compatible (Somatex; E-Z-EM; Daum) and one conventional biopsy system (Somatex), five with each device. The specimens were measured and… CONTINUE READING
