PURPOSE To evaluate whether the diagnostic performance of Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MRI in evaluating liver function and pathology is improved by considering liver volume (LV). METHODS This retrospective study included 104 patients who underwent Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MRI before liver surgery. For each patient, using the precontrast and hepatobiliary phase(More)
PURPOSE Using pathologically proven tumors and 3 methods of apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurement, we examined the potential of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) to differentiate adrenal tumors. METHODS We evaluated adrenal tumors of 52 patients who underwent magnetic resonance (MR) examination including DWI and adrenal resection or biopsy(More)

PURPOSE We aimed to gain further insight in magnetic resonance imaging characteristics of mass-forming intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (mICC), its enhancement pattern with gadoxetic acid contrast agent, and distinction from poorly differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma (pHCC). METHODS Fourteen mICC and 22 pHCC nodules were included in this study. Two(More)
