Paper Abstract

Lesions of breast, thorax and abdomen have been evaluated by NMR techniques. More than 200 patients have been evaluated using this modality. T1 measurements, spin-lattice relaxation times, from the regions of interest have been obtained and compared with values from normal tissue of the same patient whenever possible. Visualization of lesions by NMR imaging has been achieved in breast, the chest and the abdomen. Cases evaluated include examples of both benign and malignant lesions. NMR results have been correlated with CT, nuclear medicine, conventional x-ray and ultrasound examinations, as well as histological evaluations.
