Ferucarbotran (Resovist) is the second clinically approved superparamagnetic iron oxide developed for contrast-enhanced MRI of the liver. The purpose of this review is to provide an overview on the properties, clinical development, and application of ferucarbotran. Safety data obtained during clinical phases I-III revealed a total of 162 adverse events(More)
PURPOSE To compare the usefulness of gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA) and gadolinium diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA) in the diagnosis of focal liver lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one patients with focal liver lesions underwent T2- and T1-weighted spin-echo magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and(More)
A multicenter study has been employed to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) using the new liver-specific contrast agent gadoxetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA, Primovist), as opposed to contrast-enhanced biphasic spiral computed tomography (CT), in the diagnosis of focal liver lesions, compared with a standard of reference (SOR). One(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of gadoxetic acid disodium-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for the detection of focal liver lesions, with results of histopathologic examination and/or intraoperative ultrasonography used as a standard of reference. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred sixty-nine patients who were known to have or(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the efficacy of gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA) in the detection of focal liver lesions with respect to dose, side effects, and pulse sequence. MATERIALS AND METHODS A randomized double-blinded trial was performed in 33 patients with focal solid liver lesions. A bolus of Gd-EOB-DTPA, a(More)
PURPOSE To assess prospectively the efficacy and safety of postcontrast magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA) compared with that of precontrast MR imaging in patients who are known to have or are suspected of having liver lesions and who are scheduled for hepatic surgery. MATERIALS(More)
OBJECTIVE A meta-analysis was carried out of clinical trials published between 1987 and 2001 in respect of the clinical pharmacology and safety as well as the diagnostic efficacy of gadolinium-DTPA (Gd-DTPA) for direct intra-articular injection before MRI examination. DESIGN Scientific papers (clinical, postmortem and experimental studies) and information(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic efficacy of iron-oxide-enhanced MRI vs CT during arterial portography (CTAP) and intraoperative ultrasound (IOUS) in detection of liver neoplasms. Seventeen patients with malignant focal liver lesions (liver metastases, n=7), hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC, n=9), and cholangiocellular carcinoma (CCC,(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the superparamagnetic iron oxide (Resovist) designed for contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging of the liver. MATERIALS AND METHODS A phase 2 trial was performed in 33 patients with no more than five known focal solid liver lesions. Resovist was administered intravenously at doses of 4, 8, and 16 mumol of iron per(More)
RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The authors assess the efficacy of static and dynamic magnetic resonance (MR) imaging using the superparamagnetic iron oxide SHU-555A (Resovist) versus standard dose of gadolinium (Gd)-DTPA in patients with focal liver lesions. METHODS Magnetic resonance imaging was performed in 30 patients suffering from histopathologically(More)
