However, in cases of advanced cirrhosis, the contrast uptake by the liver parenchyma may be compromised by decreased hepatocytes function, which would result in reduction of the method’s accuracy to detect HCCs 4 Male, year-old patient presenting with colon cancer and multiple metastases, with hyposignal on T1-weighted, and subtle hypersignal on T2-weighted sequence.
Computed body tomography with MRI correlation. Initially, the T1-weigthed sequences in-phase, out-ofphase and with fat saturation are performed. The use of hepatobiliary contrast agents requires some care. Primary and secondary hepatic neoplasms.
Also, in the delayed-phase, the fill-in pattern is not observed, which might occur with the utilization of hepatobiliary contrast agent. Subsequently, gadoxetic acid is intravenously injected and the dynamic study arterial, portal and delayed phases is performed.

Modern imaging evaluation of the liver: So, hepatobiliary contrast agents combine the pharmacodynamic features of extracellular gadolinium usual dynamic study with the delayed hepatobiliary phase, adding functional information to the MRI study and enhancing its diagnostic accuracy 124 – 6.
Hepatobiliary contrast digerencial the method’s sensitivity to detect liver metastasis, particularly the small-sized ones. The main indications for the method include: The metastatic implants that do not contain hepatocytes become hypointense.
Hepatobiliary contrast uptake by HCC also depends on its differentiation stage. Hypovascular metastases with diffusion restriction.
In the hepatobiliary-phase, the liver parenchyma shows contrast uptake and becomes hyperintense. Review hepatoxarcinoma the clinicopathologic features of fibrolamellar carcinoma. The pharmacokinetics and doses of gadobenate dimeglumine and gadoxetic acid are different.
Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma: a case report
Focal hepatic lesions, Hepatobiliary contrast, Magnetic resonance imaging. Advances in anatomic pathology ; 14 3: Is fibrolamellar carcinoma different from hepatocellular carcinoma? The imaging characterization of benign and malignant liver lesions is very important.
The utilization of such contrast agents increases the index of detection of hypo- and hypervascular metastases Figure 7. The diagnosis of sphincter of Oddi dysfunction can be based on the finding of absent or delayed passage of the hepatobiliary contrast thru the ampulla of Vater. Radiology ; 3: Abstract The characterization heptaocarcinoma focal liver lesions is very important.
This article diferenciap been cited by other articles in PMC. Well-differentiated HCCs contain functioning hepatocytes and might show hepatobiliary contrast uptake. A US population-based study. Prevalence of simple liver cysts and hemangiomas in cirrhotic and non-cirrhotic patients submitted to magnetic resonance imaging. In the postoperative follow-up, inadvertent ductal ligation can also be easily recognized difefencial the hepatobiliary phase as an abrupt interruption of the biliary tract 45.
Hemangiomas are formed by a clump of blood vessels and do not contain hepatocytes, therefore they do not present contrast enhancement during the hepatobiliary phase and appear hypointense in this phase 12915 Figure 4. In cirrhosis, the hepatobiliary contrast uptake by the nodules depends on their differentiation stage and on the presence of functioning hepatocytes. As the gadoxetic acid dose corresponds to one quarter of the habitual extracellular gadolinium dose, the arterial phase acquisition time is critical, requiring temporal precision methods, such as real time visualization of the contrast progression through the arterial system, for the success in this phase acquisition.
The smallest lesion arrowheads presents subtle hypersignal on T2-weighted and marked signal loss on out-of-phase T1-weighted sequence caused by the presence of intralesional fat.
However, the differentiation between FNH and adenoma is not always easy at conventional MRI, because both conditions may appear as nonspecific hypervascular lesions, generating anguish for the patient and challenging the physician, in addition to the cost and patient’s anxiety with repeated examinations. The largest lesion arrows presents high signal intensity on T2-weighted, diterencial on t1-weighted sequence, and nodular, peripheral and discontinuous uptake in the arterial-phase, and no hepatobiliary contrast uptake that is a typical hemangioma behavior.
Effect of flip angle for optimization of image quality of gadoxetate disodium-enhanced biliary imaging at 1. Hepatology ; 49 3: Further potential hepatobiliary contrast applications include the evaluation of the functional hepatic reserve before partial hepatectomy; evaluation of live donor’s hepatic function as well hepatocarclnoma evaluation of early liver failure after transplant 4.
Sonographic morphometry of the liver and biliary tract in porcine models submitted to experimental biliary obstruction. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.
Hepatobiliary-specific MR contrast agents: High-degree dysplastic nodules lose the portal vascularization and start gaining abnormal arterial vascularization.
Two liver nodules are seen in the segment VIII arrows as well as a larger nodule, in the segment VI arrowheadsall of them contrast-enhanced in the arterial-phase, washout in the delayed-phase, and without uptake in the hepatobiliary-phase, characterizing HCCs.
