Accurate evaluating of remnant liver function preoperatively is important for surgery planning and reducing posthepatectomy liver failure (PHLF) rate in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients. In this study, an accurate remnant liver function evaluation method was proposed using a clinical-available MR imaging protocol. The remnant liver function measured by the proposed method showed significant difference between the patients with and without PHLF. More importantly, ROC analysis showed the proposed method has a larger AUC than remnant liver volume and ICG based parameters in predicting PHLF.
