Perfusion quantification in liver is extremely
challenging due to physiological motion and the need for
large organ coverage. Recently, a non-Cartesian parallel
imaging based technique for high resolution 3D liver
perfusion imaging was introduced. Here, this technology
was applied to image patients with focal liver lesions.
Our results demonstrate significant differences in
perfusion parameters between liver lesions and normal
tissues, illustrating the possibility of quantitative
lesion characterization using this technique.
