A comparative study on contrast enhancement between 0.5- and 2.0-Tesla field strength in rabbit VX2 carcinomas.

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Theoretically, the degree of contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance (MR) is affected by magnetic field strength. The authors conducted this study to compare the degree of MR contrast enhancement between 0.5 Tesla (T) and 2.0 T in VX carcinomas of rabbits. METHODS In 12 rabbits with VX2 tumors, both 0.5 T and 2.0 T MR imaging… (More)
