Liver signal intensity on hepatobiliary phase at
gadoxetic acid-enhanced liver MRI has been reported to be useful to estimate
global and regional liver function quantitatively. However, simple MR signal
measurement is often suffering from its sensitivity of MR field inhomogeneity
and non-linear relationship with contrast medium concentration. Herein, we investigated
of B1 correction effect on T1 map and compared its diagnostic performance to
assess liver function according to Child-Pugh classification. In addition, we
attempted to investigate risk assessment capability of B1 corrected T1 map for long-term
clinical outcome in patients with cirrhosis.
