Adenomas are composed of hepatocytes containing glycogen and lipids surrounded by a capsule. Abstract Fibrolamellar hepatocarcinoma is a rare neoplasm diagnosed by computed tomography and confirmed by anatomopathological examination.

Received Jul 23; Accepted Oct Case reports in oncology ; 5 1: Additionally, as compared with healthy livers, cirrhotic livers present later enhancement peak and slower washout 32 – Such a lesion shows intense and homogeneous contrast uptake in the arterial-phase, with decay in the portal and delayed phases, presenting greater hepatobiliary contrast uptake than the adjacent parenchyma, suggesting FNH as the first diagnostic hypothesis.

Additionally, adenomas present smaller expression of membrane transporters such as OATP1 12.

However, in cases of advanced cirrhosis, the contrast uptake by the liver parenchyma may be compromised by decreased hepatocytes function, which would result in reduction of the method’s accuracy to detect HCCs 4 Fibrolamellar variant of hepatocellular carcinoma does not have a better survival than conventional hepatocellular carcinoma–results and treatment recommendations from the Childhood Liver Tumour Strategy Group SIOPEL experience.

Radiology ; 1: The typical FNH presents with septa and lobulated or microlobulated borders, with intermediate signal intensity on T1- and T2-weighted sequences, low lesion-organ contrast and homogeneous arterial contrast uptake, with decay in the subsequent phases, becoming isointense hepatocarcinooma the adjacent liver parenchyma.


As the gadoxetic acid dose corresponds to one quarter of the habitual extracellular gadolinium dose, the arterial phase acquisition time is critical, requiring temporal precision hepatocarcinona, such as real time visualization of the contrast progression through the arterial system, for the success in this phase diagnostick. Contrast uptake is also observed in focal liver lesions with functioning hepatocytes 1.

The lesions in segments VII and VIII arrows are hepatocsrcinoma, with marked hypersignal on T2-weighted, hyposignal difeerencial T1-weighted sequence, and nodular, peripheral and discontinuous uptake in the arterial phase, a characteristic of hemangiomas.

Calcification in focal nodular hyperplasia: Main indications for hepatobiliary contrast include differentiation between focal nodular hyperplasia FNH and adenoma, characterization of hepatocelular carcinomas HCCsdetection of small liver metastasis, assessment of biliary anatomy, and characterization of postoperative biliary fistulas.

Diagnostic accuracy of MRI in differentiating hepatocellular adenoma from focal nodular hyperplasia: MR Imaging of hepatocellular carcinoma in the cirrhotic liver: Journal of the American College of Surgeons ; 6: The imaging characterization of benign and malignant liver lesions is very important. However, considering that hemangiomas are common lesions, they will be frequently present on images acquired with hepatobiliary contrast for several reasons.

Hepatobiliary-specific MR contrast agents: MR imaging of hypervascular lesions in the cirrhotic liver: Low-grade regenerative and dysplastic nodules present preferentially portal vascularization, contain functioning hepatocytes and, like the surrounding parenchyma, show hepatobiliary contrast uptake.

Cancer ; 46 2: Please review our privacy policy. Patients with advanced liver and kidney diseases alternatively compensate the contrast agents clearance by renal or biliary excretion, respectively. We report a case of a patient admitted at Hospital Mater Dei in Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil, due to fibrolamellar hepatocarcinoma, and discuss the clinical, radiological and pathological features of this disease.


Additionally, patients with advanced cirrhosis may present less hepatobiliary contrast uptake as a result from liver dysfunction.

The diagnosis of sphincter of Oddi dysfunction can be based on the finding of absent or delayed passage of the hepatobiliary contrast thru the ampulla of Vater. Female, year-old patient undergoing follow-up for metastatic gastrointestinal stromal tumor, with liver nodules to be clarified. Hemangiomas generally present typical imaging findings and are easily diagnosed by computed tomography diferenncial MRI with extracellular gadolinium contrast agent.

Eur J Cancer ; 49 Focal liver lesions enhancement may be less intense during the dynamic study, particularly in the arterial phase, because the recommended dose of gadoxetic acid is lower than the habitual extracellular gadolinium dose 5. A fraction of hepatobiliary diverencial agent is excreted by cMOAT into the biliary canaliculi multispecific canalicular organic anion transporter 1.

The presence of intralesional fat and the absence of hepatobiliary contrast uptake indicate a probable diagnosis of adenoma. The hepatobiliary contrast may contribute to the diagnosis of cholecystitis as the gallbladder is not filled by the contrast medium, differently from its habitual behavior with other contrast agents.

Accuracy of ultrasonography, spiral CT, magnetic resonance and alpha-fetoprotein in diagnosing hepatocellular carcinoma: Reporte de un caso. Hepatobiliary contrast uptake by HCC also depends on its differentiation stage.
