In this study quantitative measurements of the hepatic uptake of the liver-specific contrast agents Gd-EOB-DTPA and Gd-BOPTA were analyzed using a simple pharmacokinetic model in a group of 10 healthy subjects. A significant correlation was found in a pairwise comparison of the uptake of the two contrast agents.
