OBJECTIVE The objective of our study was to prospectively evaluate quantitatively and qualitatively the enhancement patterns of cirrhotic liver tissue and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after administration of the hepatocyte-specific contrast agent gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA) on dynamic MRI and to determine the time point of maximum liver-to-lesion contrast. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Twenty-five patients with HCC in liver cirrhosis underwent 1.5-T MRI… CONTINUE READING
