Gd-BOPTA, as a widely used hepatobiliary-specific MR contrast agent, has advantages in diagnosing focal liver lesions and may be a valuable assessment tool for the estimation of liver function. The aim of our study was to evaluate liver function according to the degree of biliary system visualization using Gd-BOPTA. Our results suggested that the degree of biliary system visualization using Gd-BOPTA-enhanced MRI may be used as a quantifiable metric to estimate liver function and liver function reserve.
