The feasibility of dynamic Gd-contrast study for evaluation of hepatopancreatobiliary lesions under free breathing was demonstrated. Superb image quality with high temporal resolutions could be obtained using a stack-of-stars k-space trajectory with golden angle ordering a CG-SENSE algorithm that supports parallel imaging and soft-gating for accelerated motion robust imaging. Selective recognition of vasculatures and lesions in the liver and pancreas can be made with this technique, which may be equivalent to fast breath-hold dynamic contrast image in young and old aged population.
