Non-invasive in vivo magnetic resonance imaging assessment of acute aflatoxin B1 hepatotoxicity in rats.


Acute aflatoxin B1 (AFB1)-induced hepatotoxicity was assessed in vivo in male Sprague-Dawley rats (150-300 g) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI results were compared to serum enzyme levels, histology and electron microscopy. Twenty-four hours following intraperitoneal delivery of AFB1 (3 mg/kg body weight in a saline/dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO; 0.03… (More)
