OBJECTIVES The objectives of this study were to analyze the differences in contrast enhancement using gadobenate dimeglumine (Gd-BOPTA or MultiHance) at 3 T versus 1.5 T and to compare Gd-BOPTA with a standard gadolinium chelate, gadopentetate dimeglumine (Gd-DTPA or Magnevist), at 3 T in a rat glioma model. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twelve rats with surgically implanted gliomas were randomized to either comparing Gd-BOPTA at 1.5 T versus 3 T (n=7) or comparing Gd-BOPTA and Gd-DTPA at 3 T (n=5… CONTINUE READING
