PURPOSE To prospectively compare T2-weighted single-shot turbo spin-echo (TSE) sequences performed with parallel and conventional radiofrequency (RF) transmission at 3.0 T for liver lesion detection, image quality, lesion conspicuity, and lesion contrast. MATERIALS AND METHODS After written informed consent and institutional review board approval, 52 consecutive patients (32 men, 20 women; mean age, 56.6 years ± 13.7 [standard deviation]) underwent routine magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with… CONTINUE READING
