The conclusions reinforce the importance of radiological imaging for the detection and characterization of ddiagnostico focal neoplasms. Consequently, the hepatobiliary phase acquisition time is different for each type of contrast agent and should be obtained minutes after gadobenate dimeglumine administration ranging between 1 and 3 hoursand 20 minutes after gadoxetic acid administration ranging between 10 and minutes 1.

Pure and mixed fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinomas differ in natural history and prognosis after complete surgical resection.

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. In the hepatobiliary phase, the healthy 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.

Female, year-old patient with liver nodules to be clarified. 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.

The largest lesion arrows presents high signal intensity on T2-weighted, hyposignal on t1-weighted sequence, and nodular, peripheral and discontinuous uptake in the arterial-phase, and no hepatobiliary contrast uptake that is a typical hemangioma behavior. Calcification in focal nodular hyperplasia: Hepatobiliary contrast agents for contrast-enhanced MRI of the liver: However, the presence of intralesional fat was detected on out-of-phase T1-weighted sequence.


American journal of clinical pathology ; 4: 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 Hepatobiliary contrast allow for the differentiation between FNH and adenoma in most cases, even in those of small lesions.

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.

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. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. The use of hepatobiliary contrast agents increases hepatcarcinoma diagnostic accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging and reduces the number of non-specific liver lesions. The utilization of hepatobiliary contrast agents may reduce the necessity of invasive diagnostic procedures as well as of further investigation with other imaging methods, and imaging follow-up, reducing costs and the anxiety of both patients and medical team.

Clinicopathologic characteristics and survival outcomes of patients with fibrolamellar carcinoma: The largest ones tend to present signal heterogeneity, with mild to moderate hypersignal on T2-weighted, hyposignal on T1-weighted sequences, homogeneous or heterogeneous arterial contrast-enhancement, late washout, and possible development of capsule Differential diagnosis of tumors and tumor-like lesions of liver in infancy and childhood.

A US population-based study. High-degree dysplastic nodules lose the portal vascularization and start gaining abnormal arterial vascularization. The characterization of focal liver diferencia, has a great clinical relevance. So, hepatobiliary contrast agents combine the pharmacodynamic features of extracellular gadolinium usual dynamic study with the delayed hepatobiliary phase, adding functional information to the MRI study and enhancing its diagnostic accuracy 124 – 6.


A potential confusion factor is the fact that some hemangiomas may present subtle central contrast uptake during the early hepatobiliary phase because of the tendency to persistent centripetal enhancement at dynamic study, like in those with extracellular gadolinium 1. Perfusional alterations present a signal similar to the one of the remainder hepatic tissue during the portal and hepatobiliary phases, while most HCCs, except the well-differentiated ones, present hyposignal in the hepatobiliary phase Cecil Tratado de medicina interna.

Fibrolamellar carcinoma of the liver: European journal of surgical oncology: Abstract The characterization of focal liver lesions is very important. Cancer ; 46 2: How to cite this article. Such contrast agents shortens the T1 relaxation time of the bile and allows for the performance of a high-resolution T1-weighted cholangiography 4.

Diagnostic Histopathology ; 16 8: Fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma in children and adolescents. Magnetic resonance imaging MRI with intravenous contrast injection extracellular gadolinium-based contras media commonly utilized in the radiological practice is considered the best imaging method in the evaluation of such lesions.

Heepatocarcinoma, there is hepatobiliary contrast uptake by adenomas and, in cases where it occurs, such an uptake tends to be preferentially peripheral in the hepatobiliary phase 124. Female, year-old patients presenting with liver steatosis and multiple, well-defined focal hypervascular lesions, with intermediate signal intensity on T2- weighted sequence, with poor lesion-organ contrast-enhancement.

Adenomas are well defined, homogeneous or heterogeneous lesions.
