Gadoxetic acid (Gd-EOB-DTPA) has become the clinical standard in diagnostic liver imaging, and provides information about the function of hepatic cells. In this study we employ multiple flip angle measurements in7 patientsto determine T1 times of liver tissue and use these to calculate the absolute concentration of Gd-EOB-DTPA in the liver 25min after administration. This can be used to image liver function.
