Computed tomography during arterial portography (CTAP) has become firmly established as a preoperative diagnostic measure characterized by a high sensitivity for the detection of liver lesions. The disadvantages are invasiveness and a high rate of false-positive results. Iron oxide-enhanced MRI as a non-invasive technique provides a high preoperative diagnostic efficacy, which can replace CTAP in many cases.
In this book, both the basic principles and newest results for the use of contrast-enhanced MRI of the liver are presented. In a close cooperation between the universities of Pisa and Frankfurt a detailed text and image collection has been developed and finalized. We, the editors sincerely hope that the presented work will allow the readers to understand and use superparamagnetic contrast agents for evaluating various diseases of the liver.

"A concise and organized approach to the most commonly encountered topics. The book is most useful to the MRI radiologist and technologist as it has an in-depth discussion about magnetic resonance protocols, comparing the outcome of the MRI imaging to that of ultrasound and helical CT scanning. The spectrum of disease covered as well as the strategies given to evaluate the liver in this book is impressive. After reading this book, radiologists and physicians should feel comfortable understanding the imaging strategies. This text can certainly help confident image interpretation and management of liver disease and will provide useful information for educating referring physicians." --Cancer Forum
