PURPOSE To investigate the additional value of diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in the MRI assessment of perilesionally recurrent hepatocellular carcinomas (HCCs) after transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE). MATERIALS AND METHODS For gadopentetate dimeglumine-enhanced multiphasic dynamic images with precontrast T1- and T2-weighted images of 23 patients treated with TACE, two radiologists independently sorted the confidence levels for the presence of a viable tumor in the vicinity of… CONTINUE READING
