Abstract
Background: The newly developed magnetic-resonance-imaging (MRI) hepatocyte-specific contrast agent, gadolinium–ethoxybenzyl–diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd–EOB–DTPA), has different excretion pathways from the conventional MRI contrast agent, gadolinium–diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd–DTPA). In this study, we compare the enhancement effect of the liver and renal parenchyma between these two contrast agents for patients with liver cirrhosis. Methods: We retrospectively included 49 consecutive patients with liver cirrhosis who underwent Gd–DTPA- and Gd–EOB–DTPA-enhanced MRIs within 3 months. We measured the signal intensity of the liver and kidn...
