Gadolinium-based contrast agents (GBCAs) have been widely used for contrast material-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. However, gadolinium accumulation in the dentate nucleus (DN) has gained attention due to recent studies. In this study, we retrospectively evaluated the susceptibility values of DN, using quantitative susceptibility mapping. The susceptibility values of the patients with GBCA administration were significantly higher than those of normal controls.
