Transarterial embolization is a common treatment for liver tumors. Currently, radiographic techniques are used clinically to provide anatomical and qualitative hemodynamic information in assessment and treatment of liver tumors. The addition of 4D Flow MRI has the potential to provide functional information about the hemodynamic changes occurring pre, during and post treatment. We completed a feasibility study in a swine, in which clear flow changes were seen in the hepatic vascular system. The additional information provided by 4D Flow MRI has potential to improve the care of cancer patients.
