OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to compare the difference in lesion enhancement between 1.5 and 3 T using an extracellular gadolinium chelate in a rat brain glioma model. METHODS Five rats (CDF Fischer 344) with implanted C6/LacZ brain gliomas were evaluated using matched T1-weighted spin echo techniques and hardware configurations at 1.5 and 3 T. Serial imaging over 10 minutes after gadoteridol (ProHance) administration was performed. Contrast enhancement (CE), signal-to-noise… CONTINUE READING
