Abstract

The study was approved by the institutional review board, and informed consent was obtained from all patients. The purpose of this study was to retrospectively evaluate the feasibility, reliability, and accuracy of breath-hold dynamic contrast material-enhanced parallel gradient-echo (GRE) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for mapping the hepatic vascular anatomy, with contrast-enhanced 64-detector row computed tomography (CT) as the reference standard. The parallel GRE MR data sets of 100 patients acquired at 1.5 T were evaluated independently by two blinded readers with respect to (a) image quality for depiction of the hepatic arteries and the portal and hepatic veins and (b) presence of arterial stenosis and variant hepatic vasculature. The readers rated image quality to be good or excellent for 91.1%-100% of the vessels. At parallel GRE MR imaging, the readers diagnosed variant hepatic vessels and arterial stenosis with 94%-100% accuracy. They concluded that parallel GRE MR imaging, as compared with 64-detector row CT, is feasible for hepatic vascular mapping and enables reliable and accurate detection of variant hepatic vasculature and diagnosis of arterial stenosis.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
