PURPOSE To examine the differential features of combined hepatocellular and cholangiocarcinoma (HCC-CC) from mass-forming intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) on gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty patients with pathologically proven combined HCC-CC (n = 20) and ICCs (n = 20) who had undergone gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI were enrolled in this study. MR images were analyzed for the shape of lesions, hypo- or hyperintense areas on the T2-weighted image (T2WI), rim… CONTINUE READING
