Signal profile on Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MR imaging in non-alcoholic steatohepatitis and liver cirrhosis induced in rats: correlation with transporter expression

To compare the transporter expression and signal profile on Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MRI between non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and cirrhotic liver induced in rats, and investigate the correlation of the transporter expression and fibrosis rate in both diseases. Forty-eight rats were divided into four groups of 12: TAA (cirrhosis), NASH 7- and 10-week… CONTINUE READING
