Radiology ; 3: The typical FNH presents with septa and lobulated or microlobulated borders, with intermediate signal intensity on T1- and T2-weighted sequences, low lesion-organ contrast and homogeneous arterial contrast uptake, with decay in the subsequent phases, becoming isointense to the adjacent liver parenchyma.

As gadoxetic acid is utilized, the hepatobiliary phase occurs in 20 minutes, so it is recommended that the order of sequences acquisition be changed in order to optimize the acquisition time. Differential diagnosis of tumors and tumor-like lesions of liver in infancy and childhood.

The utilization of such contrast agents increases the index of detection of hypo- and hypervascular metastases Figure 7.

difersncial 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.

The conclusions reinforce the importance of radiological imaging for the detection and characterization of hepatic focal neoplasms. Radiology ; 2: In the hepatobiliary phase, the hepattocarcinoma liver is evenly enhanced, becoming hyperintense; the contrast agent uptake by the biliary tract occurs progressively, and the blood vessels become hyperintense as compared with the liver parenchyma as the contrast medium is no longer in the vascular compartment.

Hemangiomas present the same imaging findings at dynamic studies with hepatobiliary contrast; however, in the delayed phase, as the hepatobiliary contrast medium is leaving the interstitium and entering into the functioning hepatocytes, the hemangioma fill-in might or might not occur in this phase, differing from its usual behavior with the use of extracellular gadolinium 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.


Homogeneous hepatobiliary contrast uptake indicates the diagnosis of FNH. In summary, hepatobiliary contrast increases the MRI accuracy and reduces the number of cases of undefined liver lesions.

Arterial embolization in the treatment of hemobilia after hepatic trauma: The pharmacokinetics and doses of gadobenate dimeglumine and gadoxetic acid are different. Contrast enhancement of liver lesions in cirrhotic patients: Outcome of patients with fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma. Additionally, hepatobiliary contrast agents allow for evaluating the biliary tract 1 – 3. Takano H, Smith WL. MR diagnostici of hypervascular lesions in the cirrhotic liver: Female, year-old patient with liver nodules to be clarified.

Journal of hepatology ; 56 4: Thus, in the diferencjal phase, most adenomas are hypointense in relation to the surrounding parenchyma Figure 3.

Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma: a case report

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.

Additionally, hepatobiliary contrast agents contribute to the diagnosis of small, benign focal diffrencial frequently found in patients with dizgnostico, particularly FNH Figure 8. Eur J Cancer ; 49 Open in a separate window.

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. The American journal difsrencial gastroenterology ; GCR ; 6 1: Effect of flip angle for optimization of image quality of gadoxetate disodium-enhanced biliary imaging at 1.

Such contrast agents are absorbed by hepatocytes via OATP1 diagnpstico polypeptide adenosintriphosphate-dependent organic anion transporterthe same as the bilirubin transporter. Female, year-old patient undergoing follow-up for metastatic gastrointestinal stromal tumor, with liver nodules to be clarified. Computed tomography of body with magnetic resonance imaging. The metastatic implants that do not contain hepatocytes become hypointense. The most frequent differential diagnoses for hypervascular lesions in patients with no hepatopathy include hemangioma, FNH diagnotsico adenoma.

Adenomas are well defined, homogeneous or heterogeneous lesions.

A US population-based study. 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.

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, diagnoztico as real time visualization of the contrast progression through the arterial system, for the success in this phase acquisition.

Initially, the T1-weigthed sequences in-phase, out-ofphase and with fat saturation are performed. The usual dynamic study with arterial, portal and delayed phases is also performed with such contrast agents.

Vilgrain V, Vullierme MP. 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.
