To determine the accuracy of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging relative to computed tomography (CT) in the diagnosis of liver metastases, a randomized, controlled study was conducted of 135 subjects, including 57 with cancer metastatic to the liver, 27 with benign cysts or hemangiomas, and 51 without focal liver disease. The sensitivity of MR imaging for detecting individual metastatic deposits was 64%, significantly greater than 51% for CT (P less than .001); the difference in sensitivity for… CONTINUE READING
