Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging at 1.5 T was used to evaluate the effects of extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL) in 30 rats and the findings on T1- and T2-weighted (spin echo 600/22, 1,600-2,000/90) images were compared with histology and scanning microscopy. The observed pathologic changes increased in severity with the number of shock waves given (500-5,000 15 kV). Post-ESWL MR ...
