BACKGROUND Higher field strength magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is becoming increasingly available and offers improved image quality; however, the clinical usefulness of this technique for the demonstration of surgically treatable functional pituitary adenomas has not been clearly established. OBJECTIVE To determine whether 3 Tesla (3T) MRI improves the detection of ACTH- and GH-secreting microadenomas over conventional imaging at field strengths of up to 1·5 Tesla (1·5T). DESIGN Data… CONTINUE READING
