The aim of this study was to compare the performance of double-contrast magnetic resonance imaging (DC-MRI) with the sequential use of superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) and gadolinium-diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA) contrast agents compared with unenhanced MRI and SPIOenhanced MRI (SPIO-MRI) in the study of the cirrhotic liver. Special attention was paid to cases in which alterations of liver uptake and distribution of the SPIO contrast medium [SPIO-liver uptake and distribution… CONTINUE READING
