The purpose was to evaluate the feasibility of dynamic
contrast study during free-breathing with navigator
technique for evaluation of the lesions in the pancreas
or liver. In all patients, dynamic contrast MR imaging
of the pancreas and liver could be performed under
free-breathing with acceptable image quality, temporal
resolutions and lesion recognitions. Thus, this
technique may be useful for evaluations of the patients
who cannot hold their breaths.
