At conventional MRI, hemangiomas present marked hypersignal on T2-weighted, diagnostoco on T1-weighted sequences, discontinuous, nodular, peripheral contrast enhancement in the arterial phase, tending to centripetal fill-in by the contrast agent in the subsequent phases 13 Additionally, hepatobiliary contrast agents allow for evaluating the biliary tract 1 – 3.

Initially, the T1-weigthed sequences in-phase, out-ofphase and with fat saturation are performed. Metastases do not contain functioning hepatocytes or biliary ducts, and do not show contrast uptake during the hepatobiliary phase.

In the hepatobiliary-phase, the liver parenchyma shows contrast uptake and becomes hyperintense.

Cancer ; 97 8: Primary and secondary hepatic neoplasms. The most frequent differential diagnoses for hypervascular lesions in patients with no hepatopathy include hemangioma, FNH and adenoma. Patients with cirrhosis Child A or B do not present any significant alteration in the total clearance of hepatobiliary contrast agents; but in cirrhosis Child C, there is a decreased total clearance and increased half life, with compensatory increase of renal excretion 8.

The differentiation between HCC and perfusion alterations may also represent a diagnostic challenge.

Magnetic resonance imaging is considered the best imaging hspatocarcinoma for evaluating such lesions, but does not allow for the diagnosis in all cases. Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma presenting with Budd-Chiari syndrome, right atrial thrombus, and pulmonary emboli.

High-degree dysplastic nodules lose the portal vascularization and start gaining abnormal arterial vascularization. Modern imaging evaluation of the liver: 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. Consequently, the hepatobiliary phase acquisition time is different for each type of contrast agent and should hepatkcarcinoma obtained minutes after gadobenate dimeglumine administration ranging between 1 and 3 hoursand 20 minutes after gadoxetic acid administration ranging between 10 and minutes 1.

Imaging of fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma. Fibrolamellar variant of hepatocellular carcinoma does not have a better survival than conventional hepatocellular carcinoma–results and treatment recommendations from the Childhood Liver Tumour Strategy Group SIOPEL experience. The characterization of focal liver lesions is very hepatocarcinomw. Support Center Support Center. Outcome of patients with fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma.

In summary, hepatobiliary contrast increases the MRI accuracy and reduces the number of cases of undefined liver lesions. Magnetic resonance imaging MRI with intravenous contrast injection extracellular gadolinium-based contras media commonly utilized in the radiological practice is considered the best imaging method in the evaluation of such lesions.


Journal of hepatology ; 56 4: Unique phenotype of hepatocellular cancers with exon-3 mutations in beta-catenin gene. However, MRI does not allow for the diagnosis in all cases whose etiology remains undetermined. Poorly differentiated or undifferentiated HCCs do not contain functioning hepatocytes so hepatobiliary contrast uptake is not observed. Hepatobiliary contrast increases the method’s sensitivity to detect liver metastasis, particularly the small-sized ones.

Services on Demand Article. The conclusions reinforce the importance of radiological imaging for the detection and characterization of hepatic focal neoplasms. Please review our privacy policy. Thus, the lesions enhancement in the hepatobiliary phase depends upon the expression and activity of such transporters, determining characteristic enhancement patterns depending on the presence or absence of functioning hepatocytes.

Hepatocytes are responsible for the uptake and excretion of the hepatobiliary contrast medium, so their integrity is essential for the enhancement of the parenchyma in the hepatobiliary phase. 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.
