PURPOSE To correlate perilesional enhancement on gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) images with histopathologic findings in patients with hepatic metastases. MATERIALS AND METHODS In seven patients with histopathologically proved hepatic metastases, MR images obtained before and early and late after the administration of gadopentetate dimeglumine were retrospectively evaluated for perilesional enhancement. The thickness of hepatic parenchyma with intense perilesional enhancement was… CONTINUE READING
