Overview

MRI

  • Chemical shift MR imaging can be used for further characterization when CT results are indeterminate.
  • Because of the high sensitivity of chemical shift MR imaging to minute amounts of intravoxel fat, MR imaging demonstrates signal intensity loss on opposed-phase images in the majority of adenomas, with a sensitivity of 89% for lesions with an attenuation of 10–30 HU and 100% for lesions with an attenuation of 10–20 HU with a maintained specificity of 100%.
