The authors sought to evaluate the potential of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging with superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) contrast material for identifying, characterising and differentiating dysplastic nodules (DN) and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in the cirrhotic liver by correlating the results with pathological findings on the explanted liver. MR imaging was used to study the liver of 400 cirrhotic patients awaiting liver transplantation, 31 of whom were selected to receive a liver. Of… CONTINUE READING
