PURPOSE To measure the sensitivity and accuracy of double-contrast magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for the diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the cirrhotic liver. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-seven patients with MR features of dysplastic nodules and/or HCC were examined. T2-weighted spin-echo and T1-weighted gradient-echo imaging was performed before and after superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) administration and immediately followed by T1-weighted gradient-echo imaging at 10, 40… CONTINUE READING
