PURPOSE To test the hypothesis that magnetic resonance (MR) imaging measurements can be used to immediately detect treated tissue regions after irreversible electroporation (IRE) ablation procedures in rodent liver tissues. MATERIALS AND METHODS All experiments received institutional animal care and use committee approval. In four rats for preliminary studies and 18 rats for formal assessment, MR imaging-compatible electrodes were inserted into the liver and MR imaging-monitored IRE… CONTINUE READING
