We compared hepatic enhancement and tumor-to-liver contrast at Gd-EOB-DTPA enhanced MR imaging between 1.5 T and 3.0 T. This study included 89 patients who underwent Gd-EOB-DTPA enhanced MRI for the evaluation of liver tumors. Liver-to-muscle signal intensity (SI) ratio, tumor-to-liver SI ratio, and conspicuity of liver tumors on Gd-EOB-DTPA enhanced MR imaging were compared between 1.5 T and 3.0 T Enhancement of liver parenchyma and tumor-to-liver contrast on Gd-EOB-DTPA enhanced MR images at 3.0 T were similar to those at 1.5 T.
