Focal liver lesions enhancement may be less intense during the dynamic study, particularly in the arterial phase, because the recommended dose of gadoxetic acid is lower than the habitual extracellular gadolinium dose 5.

diterencial New proposal ddiagnostico the staging of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis: Male, year-old patient presenting with chronic C virus hepatopathy. Male, year-old patients presenting with chronic hepatopathy and liver nodule to be clarified, adjacent to the gallbladder, as seen at ultrasonography. Belo Horizonte, MG, The usual dynamic study with arterial, portal and delayed phases is also performed with such contrast agents.

The American journal of gastroenterology ; Adenomas are well defined, homogeneous or heterogeneous lesions.

Cancer ; 6: High-grade dysplastic nodules contain functioning hepatocytes and also demonstrate hepatobiliary contrast uptake in the same way as the surrounding parenchyma Figure 5. Thus, high-grade dysplastic nodules tend to be hypovascular in the arterial and portal phases, but may also become hypervascular in the arterial phase in cases where the abnormal arterial vascularization is more developed.

Find articles by Daniella Braz Parente. Gastrointestinal tumors diferenciial childhood. J Korean Soc Radiol. Main indications for hepatobiliary contrast include differentiation between focal nodular hyperplasia FNH and adenoma, characterization of hepatocelular carcinomas HCCsdetection of small liver metastasis, assessment of biliary anatomy, and characterization of postoperative biliary fistulas.

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 as evaluation of early liver failure after transplant 4.

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.

On the other hand, poorly-differentiated or undifferentiated hepatocarcinomas do not contain functioning diferencia, and do not show hepatobiliary contrast uptake, remaining hypointense in diagnodtico to the surrounding parenchyma 21017 – 19 Figure 6.

The differentiation between HCC and perfusion alterations may also represent a diagnostic challenge. FNH presents greater density of functioning hepatocytes than a healthy liver parenchyma, in association with abnormal bile ducts which do not communicate with greater bile ducts, with consequential slower biliary excretion as compared with the surrounding liver.

The avascular lesion arrowhead is secondary to post-treatment alteration.

The characterization of focal liver lesions has a great clinical relevance. MR Imaging of hepatocellular carcinoma in the cirrhotic liver: Computed hepatocarcinoms of body with magnetic resonance imaging.

Finally, the hepatobiliary phase is acquired 20 minutes after gadoxetic acid administration 14. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. Considering that the presence of intralesional fat in NFH is rare, the patient will be maintained under imaging follow-up.

Services on Demand Article. The largest lesion arrows presents high signal intensity on T2-weighted, hyposignal 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. Also, hepatobiliary contrast-enhanced cholangiography allows for the accurate detection of postoperative complications such as biliary fistulas and bilomas which present progressive fill-in during the hepatobiliary phase.

The use of hepatobiliary contrast agents increases the diagnostic accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging and reduces the number of non-specific liver lesions. Open in a separate window. The presence of intralesional fat and the absence of hepatobiliary contrast uptake indicate a probable diagnosis of adenoma.

Low-grade regenerative and dysplastic nodules present preferentially portal vascularization, contain functioning hepatocytes and, like the surrounding parenchyma, show hepatobiliary contrast uptake.

Diagnostic Histopathology ; 16 8: 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. Diffusion- and T2-weighted sequences may be acquired after hepatobiliary contrast agent injection, considering that there is no significant interference effect.
