Gadoxetate disodium(Gd-EOB-DTPA)is a novel hepatobiliary contrast agent with characteristics of conventional contrast agents and can also be taken up by liver cells specifically, which is beneficial in characterization of focal liver lesions. In clinical practice, some small hemangiomas usually show low signal in transitional phase of Gd-EOB-DTPA enhanced MRI, defined as Pseudo washout sign(PWS), which can be easily misdiagnosed as hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) if diagnostic physician do not have sufficient experience. Our study intended to improve the understanding of hepatic hemangiomas with atypical imaging features by summarizing the imaging features of hepatic hemangioma with PWS in Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced MRI.
