Magnetization transfer ratio: a potential biomarker for the assessment of postradiation fibrosis in patients with rectal cancer.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES Magnetization transfer-magnetic resonance imaging (MT-MRI) uses differences in the magnetization interaction of the free "unbound" water protons and the macromolecular-bound protons. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether the magnetization transfer ratio (MTR) may be used to identify fibrosis in patients with rectal cancer treated with… (More)
