The purpose was to evaluate the feasibility of dynamic Gd-contrast study using fast 3D imaging sequence, DISCO under free-breathing with navigator technique for evaluation of pancreatobiliary diseases including the liver. Dynamic contrast MR imaging of the pancreatohepatobiliary regions could be performed under free-breathing with acceptable image quality and temporal resolutions. This technique may be useful for evaluations of the patients who cannot hold their breaths such as elderly patients, unconscious patients or children and may improve information acquired from single MR study with contrast medium.
