OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate whether, at dynamic MRI of the upper abdominal organs, contrast enhancement with gadoxetic acid, a hepatobiliary contrast agent, is comparable with that achieved with an extracellular contrast agent. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Dynamic gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI of the pancreas, spleen, kidney, liver, and abdominal aorta was performed on 50 patients; dynamic gadobutrol-enhanced MRI was performed on a control group of 50 patients; and the images… CONTINUE READING
