Volume Change and Liver Parenchymal Signal Intensity in Gd-EOB-DTPA-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging after Portal Vein Embolization prior to Hepatectomy

Figure 2

CT and MRI findings before and after PVE. (a) Contrast-enhanced CT before PVE showing a homogenous enhancement effect in the whole liver parenchyma. (b) CT 3 weeks after PVE of the right portal vein, showing accumulation of iodized oil mixed with ethanol in the right hepatic lobe and hypertrophy of the left lobe. (c) Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MRI before PVE, also showing a homogenous enhancement effect. (d) Gd-EOB-DTPA-MRI 1 week after PVE of the right portal vein, showing a reduction in SI in the right hepatic lobe.
