Insight into hepatocellular carcinoma biology with gadoxetate disodium-enhanced MRI


The current algorithm for the imaging diagnosis of hepatocellular carcinoma accurately detects large, progressed tumors displaying the classical imaging features of arterial hyperenhancement with ‘washout’ and/or ‘capsule’ appearance. Liver MRI with the relatively newer hepatobiliary agent, gadoxetate disodium, provides information on hepatocellular function in addition to vascularity, facilitates detection of small progressed tumors, as well as early/vaguely nodular tumors, and shows promise for characterizing hepatocellular carcinoma biology.
