No hepatobiliary contrast uptake is observed. As necessary, heavily T2-weighted cholangiographic images should also be acquired before the contrast injection, since hepatobiliary contrast agents are excreted by the biliary tract and can shorten the T2-relaxation time.

Low-grade regenerative and dysplastic nodules present preferentially portal vascularization, diferencoal functioning hepatocytes and, like the surrounding parenchyma, show hepatobiliary contrast uptake. Finally, the hepatobiliary phase is acquired 20 minutes after gadoxetic acid administration 14.

Radiology ; 3: Effect of flip angle for optimization of image quality of gadoxetate disodium-enhanced biliary imaging at 1. High-degree dysplastic nodules lose the portal vascularization and start gaining abnormal arterial vascularization.

Patients with advanced liver and kidney diseases alternatively compensate the contrast agents clearance by renal or biliary excretion, respectively. Services on Demand Article. The diagnosis of sphincter of Oddi dysfunction can be based on hepatocaricnoma finding of absent or delayed passage of the hepatobiliary contrast thru the ampulla of Vater.

Direrencial avascular lesion arrowhead is secondary to post-treatment alteration. Cancer ; 6: New proposal for the staging of nonalcoholic steatohepatitis: Cancer ; 97 8: Imaging of fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma. The conclusions reinforce the importance of radiological imaging for the detection and characterization of hepatic focal neoplasms. The characterization of focal liver lesions has a great clinical relevance. 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.


Case Report of Fibrolamellar Hepatocarcinoma, a Rare Tumor of Young Adults

Hepatology ; 39 3: On the other hand, the lesions showed homogeneous hepatobiliary contrast uptake, hence the highest likelihood of the diagnosis of multiple FNHs.

Accuracy of ultrasonography, spiral CT, magnetic resonance and alpha-fetoprotein in diagnosing hepatocellular carcinoma: We report a case of a patient admitted at Hospital Mater Dei in Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil, due to fibrolamellar hepatocarcinoma, and discuss the clinical, radiological and pathological features of this disease.

Hepatobiliary contrast allow for the differentiation between FNH and adenoma in most cases, even in those of small lesions. FNH is a benign lesion that does not require any intervention, while adenoma presents risk for malignization, necrosis and bleeding which might require emergency surgery. Such a lesion shows intense and homogeneous contrast uptake in the arterial-phase, with decay diagnostick the portal and delayed phases, presenting greater hepatobiliary contrast uptake than the adjacent parenchyma, suggesting FNH as the first diagnostic hypothesis.

A US population-based study. Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil, Is fibrolamellar carcinoma different from hepatocellular carcinoma? The currently available hepatocyte-selective contrast media are the following: Thus, in the hepatobiliary phase, most adenomas are hypointense in relation to the surrounding parenchyma Figure 3.

Further potential hepatobiliary contrast applications include the evaluation of the functional hepatic reserve before partial hepatectomy; evaluation of live donor’s hepatic function as well as evaluation of early liver failure after transplant 4. Well-differentiated HCCs contain functioning hepatocytes and might show hepatobiliary contrast uptake.

Progres dans les recherches sur le cancer ; Vilgrain V, Vullierme MP. 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, such as real time visualization of the contrast progression through the arterial system, for the success in this phase acquisition.

Primary and secondary hepatic neoplasms. The hepatobiliary contrast may contribute to the diagnosis of cholecystitis as the gallbladder is not filled by the contrast medium, differently from its habitual behavior with other contrast agents.

Like in cirrhosis, perfusional alterations in patients with metastasis show contrast uptake in the hepatobiliary phase, differently from metastases 1.
