Abstract

A magnetic resonance (MR) imaging scanner operated at 0.5 T with a specially constructed receiving coil was used to measure volumes of primary spontaneous tumors in rats and guinea pigs. The coil was used to improve the signal to noise ratio (S/N) of the MR images of tumors in these small animals. The tumor volume was determined by the summation of the volume of contiguous slices or ellipsoid approximation. The accuracy of the volume measurement was better when the numerical integration was used in calculating the slice volume. The open sided saddle (OSS) coil used as the receiving coil gave better S/N than that of the standard head coil.
