OBJECTIVE: We investigated the characteristic findings of regenerative nodules (RNs) for differentiating early hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) from high-grade dysplastic nodules (HGDNs) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA; EOB-MRI) and contrast-enhanced ultrasonography (CEUS) in patients with chronic liver disease. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Pathologically confirmed lesions (100 early HCCs, 7 HGDNs, and 20 RNs with a maximum diameter of more than 1 cm and mean maximal diameters of 15...

PURPOSE: To identify the most reliable imaging features for differentiating hepatocellular carcinoma with paradoxical uptake on the hepatobiliary phase (HCCpara ) from focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH)-like nodules using Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MRI. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a retrospective study. Twenty patients with HCCpara and 21 patients with FNH-like nodules were included. The following MRI features were evaluated using 3.0 Tesla unit by two radiologists: signal intensity (SI) on T1-, T2-, and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI), arterial enhancement pattern, washout appearance on the portal venous phase (PVP) and/or transitional phase (TP), uptake pattern on the hepatobiliary phase (HBP), "T2 scar," "EOB scar," and chemical shift on in- and out-of-phase images...

PURPOSE: To investigate whether the addition of gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA)-enhanced 3D T1-weighted MR cholangiography (T1w-MRC) to 3D T2-weighted MRC (T2w-MRC) improves the confidence and diagnostic accuracy of biliary anatomy in living liver donors. METHODS: Two abdominal radiologists retrospectively and independently reviewed pre-operative MR studies in 58 consecutive living liver donors. The second-order bile duct visualization on T1w- and T2w-MRC images was rated on a 4-point scale...

PURPOSE: This systematic review evaluated the diagnostic accuracy and impact on patient management of hepatocyte-specific gadoxetic acid enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (GA-MRI) compared to contrast enhanced computed tomography (CE-CT) in patients with liver metastases. METHOD: Four biomedical databases (PubMed, EMBASE, Cochrane Library, York CRD) were searched from January 1991 to February 2016. Studies investigating the accuracy or management impact of GA-MRI compared to CE-CT in patients with known or suspected liver metastases were included...

Background and Purpose. Contrast media (CM) for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may determine the development of acute adverse reactions. Objective was to retrospectively assess the frequency and severity of adverse reactions associated with gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) injection in patients who underwent MRI. Material and Methods. At our center 10608 MRI examinations with CM were performed using five different GBCAs: Gd-BOPTA (MultiHance), Gd-DTPA (Magnevist), Gd-EOBDTPA (Primovist), Gd-DOTA (Dotarem), and Gd-BTDO3A (Gadovist)...

PURPOSE: Our aim was to compare the interobserver and intraobserver variability for the measurement of the size of liver metastases in patients with carcinoid tumors with various magnetic resonance (MR) series. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this retrospective institutional review board-approved study, 30 patients with liver metastases from a carcinoid primary had a complete MR examination of the abdomen at 1.5 T with gadolinium-ethoxybenzyl-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA)...

Hepatocellular carcinoma is the most common primary hepatic tumor in dogs and is amenable to surgical resection in many cases. Unfortunately, overlap of sonographic findings between benign and malignant hepatic lesions typically requires more invasive diagnostic tests to be performed (e.g., biopsy for histopathology). The availability of a noninvasive diagnostic test to identify hepatocellular carcinoma would be beneficial. The use of a liver-specific magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent such as gadoxetate disodium (Gd-EOB-DTPA; Eovist® or Primovist®) has improved lesion detection in human patients...

We demonstrate a method for the isolation of EOB-DTPA (3,6,9-triaza-3,6,9-tris(carboxymethyl)-4-(ethoxybenzyl)-undecanedioic acid) from its Gd(III) complex and protocols for the preparation of its novel non-radioactive, i.e., natural Ga(III) as well as radioactive (68)Ga complex. The ligand as well as the Ga(III) complex were characterized by nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and elemental analysis. (68)Ga was obtained by a standard elution method from a (68)Ge/(68)Ga generator...

PURPOSE: To investigate the efficacy of the projection onto convex sets (POCS) algorithm at Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced hepatobiliary-phase MRI. METHODS: In phantom study, we scanned a phantom and obtained images by conventional means (P1 images), by partial-Fourier image reconstruction (PF, P2 images) and by PF with the POCS algorithm (P3 images). Then we acquired and compared subtraction images (P2-P1 images and P3-P1 images). In clinical study, 55 consecutive patients underwent Gd-EOB-DTPA (EOB)-enhanced 3D hepatobiliary-phase MRI on a 1...

PURPOSE: To assess the diagnostic accuracy of intracellular uptake rates (Ki ), and other quantitative pharmacokinetic (PK) parameters, for hepatic fibrosis stage; to compare this accuracy with a previously published semiquantitative metric, contrast enhancement index (CEI); and to assess variability of these parameters between liver regions. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a case-control study design. Dynamic Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced 1.5T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was performed prospectively in 22 subjects with varying known stages of hepatic fibrosis...

BACKGROUND: Variable degrees of differentiation in hepatocellular carcinoma(HCC)under Edmondson-Steiner grading system has been proven to be an independent prognostic indicator for HCC. Up till now, there has been no effective radiological method that can reveal the degree of differentiation in HCC before surgery. This paper aims to evaluate the use of Gd-EOB-DTPA-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging combined with T1 mapping for the diagnosis of HCC and assessing its degree of differentiation...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: This study aimed to determine whether the predicted remnant liver function on dynamic hepatocyte-specific contrast media-enhanced magnetic resonance (DHCE-MR) imaging correlates with the results of the indocyanin green retention test (ICG R15) after hepatic resection or radiofrequency ablation (RFA). METHODS: This prospective multicenter study was approved by the Institutional Review Boards of each hospital. Informed consents were obtained from all...

PURPOSE: Image non-uniformity may cause substantial problems in magnetic resonance (MR) imaging especially when a 3-T scanner is used. We evaluated the effect of image non-uniformity correction in gadolinium ethoxybenzyl-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA)-enhanced MR imaging using a 3-T scanner. METHODS: Two commercially available methods for image non-uniformity correction, surface coil intensity correction (SCIC), and phased-array uniformity enhancement (PURE), were applied to Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced images acquired at 3-T in 20 patients...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study to evaluate the effectiveness of enhanced diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) for distinguishing liver haemangiomas from metastatic tumours (mets). METHODS: This study included 23 patients with 27 haemangiomas and 26 patients with 46 mets. Breath-holding diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) (b-values of 0, 50, 100, 150, 200, 400 and 800 s/mm(2) ) were obtained before and 20 min after injection of gadolinium ethoxybenzyl diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA)...

OBJECTIVE: Using Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MRI to assess liver function and validate with indocyanine green (ICG) tests and parenchymal cell volume (PCV). METHODS: Nineteen patients scheduled for operation were enrolled. Functional liver volume (FLV) was computed from 20min post-contrast images. ICG retention was measured in serum 15min after injection. The histological PCV was determined from resected liver specimen. RESULTS: FLV showed significantly correlated with ICG retention (ICG-R15: r=-0...

BACKGROUND: Contrast enhanced magnetic resonance cholangiography is a novel technique and promising method in demonstrating biliary tree anatomy and evaluating biliary disorders. However, to date, there are a limited number of studies that have focused on the impact of this technique. AIMS: We aimed to evaluate the additional role of contrast enhanced MR cholangiography (MRC) and compare contrast enhanced MRC with T2-weighted (w) magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) in the diagnosis of biliary disorders...
