Mangafodipir trisodium (MnDPDP) is a contrast agent for use in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the liver. The agent is taken up by normal hepatocytes resulting in increased signal on T1-weighted imaging, and is excreted in the biliary system. Hepatocyte-containing liver neoplasms such as hepatomas or focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH), take up MnDPDP and demonstrate varying degrees of enhancement. Metastatic liver deposits and primary liver tumours of non-hepatocyte origin do not typically… CONTINUE READING
