Revisiting Liver Imaging with VIBE

Volume Interpolated Breath-hold Examination (VIBE) offers three-dimensional multiphase image acquisition before and following contrast administration on a breath-hold time scale. The dynamic behavior of liver lesions and structures during the precontrast, arterial, portal venous, early equilibrium and 5-minute delayed equilibrium phases of enhancement allows more accurate characterization than static pre- and postcontrast analysis. [...]

Case Report: Metastases from Neuroendocrine Carcinoma: Value of Diffusion-Weighted MR Imaging Compared to 68Ga-DOTATOC PET-CT

Neuroendocrine tumors may be challenging to diagnose. Diffusion-weighted MR imaging (DWI) plays an important role in the accurate detection of liver lesions, which may be occult onconventional MRI and especially CT. In the presented case, the suspicion of diffuse hepatic spread is also supported by the additionally performed 68Ga-DOTATOC PET. The article shows, that DWI […] [...]
