PURPOSE To compare the use of ferumoxide-enhanced T1-weighted gradient-echo (GRE) MR imaging with that of spiral computed tomography during arterial portography (CTAP) and T2-weighted Turbo spin-echo (SE) MR imaging in detection of lesions and of segmental involvement in patients with liver metastases. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-two candidates for metastasectomy of the liver underwent spiral CTAP, ferumoxide-enhanced GRE MR imaging, and T2-weighted Turbo SE MR imaging. A total of 176 liver… CONTINUE READING
