An approach for rapid and reliable visualization of radiofrequency (RF) ablation lesions using dynamic contrast enhanced MRI is presented. Novel processing algorithms are presented that demonstrate the ability to identify distinct regions within RF lesions and can do so more rapidly than traditional dynamic contrast enhanced processing methods.
