The combination of diffusion-weighted MR imaging with Gd-EOB-DTPA enhanced T1-weighted MR imaging resulted in the highest diagnostic accuracy for the detection of colorectal liver metastases compared with either technique on its own. Combining both techniques appear to be optimum for defining the burden and distribution of liver metastases in patients with colorectal cancer to inform management strategies.
