To study the morphology of the normal and inflamed bladder wall, the findings of magnetic resonance imaging and histopathologic examination of 13 in vitro specimens were correlated. Normal bladder wall appeared as a band of intermediate signal intensity on T1-weighted images and as bands of low (inner) and intermediate (outer) signal intensity on T2-weighted images. Inflamed bladder walls demonstrated two additional inner bands of intermediate (inner) and high (innermost) signal intensity on T1… CONTINUE READING
