5 T). a Axial image obtained with fat-suppressed, respiratory-triggered T2w TSE sequence. b–e Axial images obtained with T1w GRE sequence before (b) and 15 s (c), 55 s (d), and 2 h after (e) contrast injection. T2w and unenhanced T1w images (a, b) reveal one large and two small metastases. Dynamic images show peripheral enhancement of the liver lesions, consistent with the enhancement pattern of hypovascular metastases after administration of nonspecific Gd-based contrast medium (c, d). The two small metastases are most conspicuous on delayed image (arrows in e) as a result of selective enhancement of liver parenchyma (e, arrows).

Unenhanced T1w image for comparison (e). f–h Patient with metastasis from islet cell carcinoma. Axial T2w images obtained with fat-suppressed, respiratory-triggered TSE sequence before (f) and 15 min after (g) IV injection of Resovist. Precontrast image does not allow reliable detection of the liver lesion despite excellent image quality. Selective signal reduction of the liver parenchyma on image enhanced with iron oxide particles improves conspicuity of the very small metastasis (arrow in g).

Normal appearance on T2w image (a) and IP image (b). On OP image (c), fatty infiltration is indicated by very low SI of most of the parenchyma of the right lobe. There is only moderate fatty infiltration of the left lobe (see Fig. 4). 83 Iron overload of the liver occurs in many different disorders. Primary or hereditary hemochromatosis is a genetic defect of iron metabolism characterized by excessive intestinal absorption of dietary iron (Fig. 33). 88 In more advanced disease, excess iron is also stored in the joints, gonads, pancreas, pituitary gland, and myocardium and can cause joint disease, insulindependent diabetes mellitus, hypogonadism, and cardiac dysfunction.
