OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of simultaneous use of respiratory triggering in hepatic diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), we compared DWI with respiratory triggering (RT-DWI) and DWI under free breathing (FB-DWI) in terms of relative contrast between hepatic tumor and surrounding liver parenchyma, apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) measurement, and frequency of respiratory misregistration. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty patients (21 men, 9 women, aged 25 to 80 years) with liver metastasis… CONTINUE READING
