Liver Imaging: MRI with CT Correlation by Ersan Altun

By Ersan Altun

  • The first unmarried resource paintings to accommodate the 2 fundamental radiologic modalities in diagnosing and treating benign and malignant ailments of the liver, provided with basically laid out MRI and CT correlations. built by way of an editor group led by way of one of many world’s prime specialists in stomach imaging, Richard C. Semelka MD.
  • User-friendly, atlas-style presentation, with over 1500 MRI and CT pictures in over 320 figures that includes cutting-edge MR and CT imaging sequences, multidetector row CT pictures, 3D reformatted photos, breath-hold MRI sequences, and state-of-the-art MR 3T images
  • Highly useful procedure for imaging of focal and diffuse liver lesions, entire correct and systematic (differential) diagnostic info, the most recent references to fundamental literature and scientific facts, and sufferer administration possibilities
  • Reflects a pattern-recognition method of MRI and CT imaging, aiding with effective scanning of pictures and evaluate and prognosis of disorders

24 Chapter 2 sequences, which would dramatically reduce the motion artifacts, is still in progress. In uncooperative patients, GE sequences may be modified as a single-shot technique using the minimum TR to achieve breathing-independent images. Such sequences have included so-called magnetization prepared rapid acquisition gradient echo (MP-RAGE). MP-RAGE sequences include turbo fast low-angle shot (turboFLASH) sequence. 11 Change in the size of susceptibility artifacts on SGE sequences. T1-weighted transverse in-phase (a), out-of-phase (b) and post-gadolinium hepatic arterial dominant phase (c) SGE images show the decrease in the size of prominent susceptibility artifact arising from IVC filter with short TE times.

17). The water and fat resonances are not clearly delineated in this circumstance, causing fat–water frequency “overlap”, and potentially a significant number of fat spins to be unsuppressed. 17) (7,12). Further improvement in uniform fat suppression can be achieved by incorporating adiabatic pulses, which are a specially designed class of RF pulses that provide B1 insensitive spin nutation. 18). The uniformity of fat suppression is more robust than traditional spectral-selective techniques, making it the method of choice for liver and bowel imaging.

Focally increased transient heterogeneous enhancement in the right lobe of the liver develops due to acute on chronic hepatitis in a patient with chronic liver disease. Increased transient heterogeneous enhancement on the central portion of the liver may develop secondary to Budd–Chiari syndrome (e). Note that the IVC is compressed (e). Increased transient parenchymal enhancement may develop around dilated inflamed bile ducts in ascending cholangitis (f). Increased transient parenchymal enhancement may develop around inflamed gallbladder as in acute cholecystitis (g).
