Abstract

In summary, MR imaging is superior to other imaging modalities, including CT, for the work-up of liver masses. The current challenge is whether the superior performance of MR imaging translates into a beneficial effect on patient management, disease outcome, and health care costs. New MR sequences, phased-array surface coils, and tissue-specific MR contrast agents suggest that MR imaging may exceed further the diagnostic ability of CT.
