PURPOSE To compare chemical shift MRI obtained at 1.5 Tesla (T) and two pairs of echo time (TE) in-phase and opposed-phase 3.0T MRI to assess their usefulness for the differentiation between adrenal adenomas and non-adenomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS We evaluated 91 adrenal masses (75 adenomas, 16 non-adenomas) in 85 patients. The MR imaging parameters were: T1-dual-gradient-echo(GRE) [echo times (TEs) = 1.1/2.3 ms (first-echo-pair) or 3.5/4.6 ms (second-echo-pair)] at 3.0T, and T1-dual-GRE (TEs… CONTINUE READING
