OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the degree of hepatic enhancement and image quality in patients with cirrhosis or chronic hepatitis who underwent multiphasic contrast-enhanced dynamic imaging on MDCT at least twice using standard (300 mg I/mL) and higher (370 mg I/mL) iodine concentrations in contrast medium during follow-up periods. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included 20 patients with chronic liver diseases who underwent at least two multiphasic contrast-enhanced… CONTINUE READING
