Hemodynamic analysis of bladder tumors using T1-dynamic contrast-enhanced fast spin-echo MRI
European Journal of Radiology, 08/03/2012
Kanazawa Y et al. – T1–dynamic contrast–enhanced fast spin–echo magnetic resonance imaging (T1DCE–FSE–MRI) offers three advantages: quantitative analysis; high–quality images; and high temporal resolution even for SE images. Use of (delta)R1 analysis with T1DCE–FSE–MRI allows more detailed information on the hemodynamics of bladder tumors to be obtained and assists in differentiation between bladder tumors and the normal bladder wall.
