OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to determine the clinical implication of small (<20 mm) enhancing hepatic nodules observed only at three-dimensional gadobenate dimeglumine-enhanced hepatic arterial-phase magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the hepatitis B virus-induced mild cirrhosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Study population included 75 patients (58 men and 17 women; age range, 45-74 years) who had 100 arterial-only enhancing hepatic nodules occult during portal- and equilibrium-phase… CONTINUE READING
