Liver MRI – Frederic Pigneur, MD – CME CHT Gan

MRI is one of the most useful and rapidly developing diagnostic tools for the evaluation of liver pathologies. MRI allows acquisition of images with excellent tissue contrast and anatomical detail. It is particularly good at visualizing liver tissue and is capable of detection and characterization of focal liver lesions. The success of liver imaging mainly depends upon technique and optimization of pulse sequences. Fast breath hold T1 and T2 sequences with smaller slice thickness and high resolution matrix are routinely used for liver imaging. Contrast enhanced T1 weighted scans play a main role in liver imaging because of their high sensitivity and specificity for detection and characterization of focal hepatic lesions. .
