Superparamagnetic iron oxide enhanced magnetic resonance imaging of rat liver with hepatocellular carcinoma and benign hyperplastic nodule.

Abstract

RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The authors assess the potential of a new superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) in grading hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) histologically and in differentiating HCC from benign hyperplastic nodule (HPN). METHODS Nine Wistar rats (with poorly to moderately differentiated HCC, well-differentiated HCC, and HPN) received drinking water… (More)
