Detection of a fatty liver after binge drinking: correlation of MR-spectroscopy, DECT, biochemistry and histology in a rat model.

Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate the possibility of detecting a fatty liver after binge drinking in an animal model using (1)H magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS), dual-energy computed tomography (DECT), biochemistry, and the gold standard of histology. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 20 inbred female Lewis rats, an… (More)
