OBJECTIVES We compared the diagnostic performance of gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI and 16-slice multidetector CT (MDCT) with respect to their abilities to detect hepatic metastases and differentiate hepatic metastases from hepatic cysts and haemangiomas. METHODS 67 patients with 110 liver metastases (size 0.3-2.5 cm), 33 haemangiomas (size 0.5-1.5 cm) and 17 cysts (size 0.3-1.0 cm) underwent 4-phase MDCT and gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI, including early dynamic phases, post-contrast T(2… CONTINUE READING
