Perfusion quantification in liver is extremely challenging due to physiological motion and the need for large organ coverage. Recently, a non-Cartesian parallel imaging based technique for high resolution 3D liver perfusion imaging was introduced. Here, this technology was applied to image patients with focal liver lesions. Our results demonstrate significant differences in perfusion parameters between liver lesions and normal tissues, illustrating the possibility of quantitative lesion characterization using this technique.
