Double contrast material-enhanced MRI demonstrated the geographic or intersegmental differences of hepatic fibrosis in the C-viral group distinguished from the B-viral group showing no remarkable variations among the different hepatic segments. The relative lack of fibrosis in the CL and the more advanced fibrosis in the RL causes a right posterior hepatic notch especially in the patients with chronic C-viral hepatitis, whereas expansion of the gallbladder fossa is not closely related to the intersegmental differences in hepatic fibrosis regardless of the sorts of the viruses.
