OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to assess the difference in the activity of biliary and renal excretion between normal and cirrhotic livers on contrast-enhanced MR imaging obtained with gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA). METHODS A total of 78 patients with cirrhotic liver (n=44) and with normal liver (n=34) underwent multi-phase Gd-EOB-DTPA enhanced MR imaging (arterial, portal, equilibrium, and three hepatobiliary phases (10, 15 and 20 min HP… CONTINUE READING
