a IRE ablation of pig breast (two arrows) and measurement of the skin–electrode distance. b CT reconstruction of pig breast during IRE with parallel electrodes. c Immediately after IRE, there was contrast enhancement and swelling in the breast. d Two hours after IRE, T1WI MR imaging showed that the breast was swelling, which was indicated by the low signal intensity. e Two hours after IRE, T2WI MR imaging showed that the breast was swollen, with high signal intensity. f Two hours after IRE, contrast-enhanced T1WI MR imaging showed the breast was swelling with slight inhomogeneous enhancement. Three months after IRE, T1WI(G), T2WI(H) and contrast-enhanced T1WI(J) MR imaging showed that the breast, skin and nipple of the pig were normal
