OBJECTIVE To evaluate the occurrence rate of temporal peritumoral enhancement associated with hepatic cavernous hemangiomas and to correlate that with the speed of intratumoral contrast enhancement and tumor volume. METHODS Dynamic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of 69 consecutive patients with 136 hemangiomas was reviewed for peritumoral enhancement. Tumor volume was estimated by the largest diameter on T2-weighted images. Speed of intratumoral contrast enhancement was determined by portal… CONTINUE READING
