PurposeTo evaluate whether incorporation of a 3D turbo spin-echo sequence during T2-weighted MR imaging improves the detection of focal hepatic lesions by 3T MR imaging.Materials and methodsSeventy-nine consecutive patients including 67 patients with 62 malignant and 71 benign lesions and 12 patients having no hepatic lesion underwent respiratory-triggered fat-suppressed axial T2-weighted turbo spin-echo imaging using two-dimensional (2D-TSE) and 3D (3D-TSE) sequences. Coronal multiplanar… CONTINUE READING
