PURPOSE To investigate the ability of magnetic resonance (MR) to monitor radio-frequency (RF) ablation treatments by comparing MR images of thermal lesions to histologically assayed cellular damage. We developed a new methodology using three-dimensional registration for making spatial correlations. MATERIALS AND METHODS A low-field, open MRI system was used to guide an ablation probe into rabbit thigh muscle and acquire MR volumes after ablation. After fixation, we sliced and photographed the… CONTINUE READING
