  title={Hepatic metastases: use of diffusion-weighted echo-planar imaging},
  author={Melanie Bruegel and Ernst J. Rummeny},
  journal={Abdominal Imaging},
Diffusion-weighted MR imaging is increasingly applied to detect and characterize focal hepatic lesions. In this update article, technical aspects regarding diffusion-weighted echo-planar imaging (DW-EPI) of the liver will be addressed, and concepts for image interpretation will be provided. The value of DW-EPI for the detection of hepatic metastases is illustrated on the basis of a review of the literature and our personal experience. In this respect, special emphasis is given to the comparison… CONTINUE READING
