Dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) liver MRI is a powerful tool for the diagnosis and characterization of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). In this work, a previously developed technique called IVD HYCR is applied to DCE liver imaging to achieve volumetric liver coverage with 2.0 mm isotropic spatial resolution and 4.0 sec temporal resolution. Results from both healthy volunteers and patient volunteers with HCC are presented.
