Abstract

Background and Objective: Magnetic resonance imaging's (MRI) potential to monitor interstitial laser photocoagulation (ILP) has been previously demonstrated and is further tested here with improved spatial and temporal resolution. Study Design/Materials and Methods: In vivo experiments employed fiber-delivered 1,064 nm light (3.0 W, 150 sec) in six rabbit livers monitored under T1-weighted FSE MRI as 1 image/10 sec and a 3 mm thick 8 cm FOV. Image signal intensities (SI) were compared with temperatures (T) at 7, 10, and 15 mm from the fiber. Results: Data showed 33°C < T < 60°C. SI did not vary inverse-linearly with T; changes in the tissue altered the MRI signal interfering with the SI changes due to temperature. Conclusion: MRI cannot map SI-derived temperatures over the entire treatment site. The role of MRI's temperature sensitivity must be coordinated with organ- and dose- specific tissue changes.
