Images Anatomy For Mri Liver Contrast

Diagnostic Imaging For Liver

HCC following treatment by RF ablation. On the pre-contrast CT scan (a) a well-defined, slightly hypodense nodule (arrow) surrounded by a hypodense rim is demonstrated in segment VII of the right liver lobe. During the arterial phase (b) after contrast medium administration a markedly hyperdense area (arrowhead) is seen near the necrotic lesion. This area becomes isodense in the portal venous phase (c) and represents an APS post RF ablation Fig. 27a-c....

Techniques for Liver MR Imaging

Normal Mri Liver

1.2 MR Imaging Techniques and Concepts 1.2.3 The Uncooperative Patient Examination Magnetic resonance imaging MRI is establishing a role as a primary diagnostic technique with evidence showing MR to have advantages over computer tomography CT as regards diagnostic sensitivity and specificity for many pathologies of solid organs, bile and pancreatic ducts, bowel, peritoneum, and retroperitoneum. MRI is particularly well-suited to the evaluation of liver pathology due to an ability to generate...

Biliary Atresia Triangular Cord Sign

Phrygian Cap Gallbladder

Same case as demonstrated in Fig. 9. MRCP demonstrates diffuse, hyperintense, round and cystic lesions, distributed in both lobes of the liver, with a flower tree appearance communication between sacculi and bile ducts (Fig. 11), which is positively demonstrated with Gd-BOPTA and other hepatobiliary contrast agents if contrast material is present within the sacculi and bile ducts during the hepatobiliary phase after administration (Fig. 12). Differential...

Benign Biliary Neoplasms 731

Hiatus Diameter

Biliary cystadenoma is a rare cystic neoplasm that represents less than 5 of all intrahepatic cysts of biliary origin that arise from intra- and extrahep-atic bile ducts 27 . This neoplasm may occur anywhere along the intra- or extrahepatic bile ducts, although about 80 of lesions are found partly or completely within the liver. The cause of biliary cystadenoma is unknown, although it could be related to a congenital anomaly of the biliary primitive bud. This neoplasm can be classified as...

Clinical Implications

Mrv Brain Planning

3D CE MR portography permits accurate evaluation of the intra- and extrahepatic portal-venous system as well as the hepatic veins (Fig. 15). Due to the large field of view, the short time of acquisition, the lack of radiation, the non-invasive nature of the procedure and the low risk of complications, MR portography is regarded as superior to conventional catheter digital subtraction angiography (DSA). Clinical applications of 3D CE MR portography include the assessment of portal hypertension...

Imaging of Benign Focal Liver Lesions

4.1 Primary Benign Liver Lesions 4.1.2 Focal Nodular Hyperplasia 4.1.4 Nodular Regenerative Hyperplasia 4.2 Secondary Benign Liver Lesions Each of the cellular components of the liver - he-patocytes, biliary epithelium and mesenchyme -can give rise to benign tumors. It is possible to classify these tumors based on their cellular origin Hepatocellular adenoma Hepatocellular hyperplasia Focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) Nodular regenerative hyperplasia Congenital hepatic fibrosis or polycystic...

Confluent Hepatic Fibrosis

Liver Fibrosis Mri

Confluent hepatic fibrosis is a mass-like fibrosis seen in approximately 15 of patients with advanced cirrhosis who are candidates for liver transplantation. The imaging findings of confluent fibrosis result in it being characterized due to its specific location in the liver, which is frequently the medial segment of the left and or right lobe. Calcifications or dilatation of the biliary ducts are very rare. Imaging techniques such as US are not specific for the diagnosis of confluent hepatic...

Parenchymal Pseudolesions

Mri Scan Lever

Hepatic pseudolesions are non-neoplastic abnormalities which may be sub-divided into parenchymal pseudolesions and vascular pseudolesions. Parenchymal pseudolesions include focal fatty change, focal sparing, inflammatory pseudotumor, confluent fibrosis, pseudotumor hypertrophy and hepatic peliosis. Vascular pseudolesions, on the other hand, are non-neoplastic hepatic pseudole-sions such as APS, THAD, and vascular abnormalities associated with Budd-Chiari syndrome. Non-neoplastic abnormalities...
