Effect of magnetic resonance imaging on Xenopus laevis embryogenesis.
Xenopus laevis embryos, exposed to various lengths of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), demonstrated no abnormal morphology, function, or developmental delays. The overall protein profiles and nucleic acid ratios were similar compared to controls. Results suggest there are no adverse effects of MRI components on the development of this vertebrate.
