In this abstract, we compared dynamic first-pass enhancement properties of gadoxetic acid with that of gadopentetate dimeglumine in the patients with HCC. Gadoxetic acid-enhanced MRI showed more rapid wash-out of HCC, stronger enhancement of hepatic parenchyma, and weaker enhancement of vessels than the standard Gd-chelate enhanced MRI.
