PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of real-time magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) T1-based treatment monitoring for predicting volume of lesions induced by laser-induced thermotherapy (LITT) of liver metastases. MATERIALS AND METHODS This prospective study was approved by the institutional review board and informed consent from all included patients was obtained. In 151 patients, 237 liver metastases were ablated during 372 LITT procedures. 1.5 T MRI treatment… CONTINUE READING
