RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To evaluate the imaging capabilities of ultrasound (US), computed tomography (CT), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in monitoring interstitial cryotherapy and to compare them with visual control. METHODS An experimental MR-compatible, vacuum-insulated and liquid nitrogen-cooled cryoprobe was inserted under in vitro conditions into a porcine liver, which was kept at a temperature of 37 +/- 1 degrees C, in a water bath with continuous stirring. The freezing… CONTINUE READING
