Gadoxetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA) has become the clinical
standard in diagnostic liver imaging, and provides
information about the function of hepatic cells. In this
study we employ multiple flip angle measurements in7
patientsto determine T1 times of liver tissue and use
these to calculate the absolute concentration of
Gd-EOB-DTPA in the liver 25min after administration.
This can be used to image liver function.
