PURPOSE To determine the feasibility and sensitivity of multisection fast low-angle shot (FLASH) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the depiction of hepatic metastases. MATERIALS AND METHODS The cases of 10 patients with 39 surgically proved hepatic metastases were prospectively evaluated. After unenhanced T1- and T2-weighted spin-echo (SE) and FLASH imaging, 4 mL of a 0.5 mol/L solution of a gadolinium chelate (tetraazacyclododecanetetraacetic acid) was injected into the superior mesenteric… CONTINUE READING
