OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to assess the value of contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance cholangiography (MRC) performed in different time delays after injection of gadoxetic acid disodium (Gd-EOB-DTPA) for the diagnosis of active bile leak. METHODS This retrospective analysis included Gd-EOB-DTPA enhanced MR images of 34 patients suspected of bile leak. Images were acquired 20-25 min after Gd-EOB-DTPA injection. If there was inadequate contrast in the bile ducts then delayed… CONTINUE READING
