PURPOSE To compare the efficacy of fat-suppressed T1-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and dynamic MR imaging in the diagnosis of small pancreatic adenocarcinomas. MATERIALS AND METHODS Pancreatic adenocarcinomas in 15 patients were evaluated with dynamic computed tomography (CT) and five MR imaging sequences that included fat-suppressed T1-weighted technique and dynamic multiplanar gradient-recalled acquisition in the steady state technique. RESULTS The difference in contrast-to… CONTINUE READING
