Dynamic gadoxetic acid-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows the investigation of liver function through the observation of the perfusion and uptake of contrast agent in the parenchyma. Voxel-by-voxel quantification of the contrast uptake rate (k1 ) from dynamic gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI through the standard dual-input, two-compartment model… CONTINUE READING
