BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare in vivo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ex vivo autoradiography with histopathological results for the detection and characterization of liver lesions in an experimental model of human neuroendocrine tumors. MATERIAL AND METHODS Intestinal STC-1 endocrine tumor cells were injected into 30 nude mice to achieve hepatic dissemination. Seven to 30 days after injection, T2-weighted in vivo images covering the entire liver were acquired with a 7… CONTINUE READING
