The purpose of this study was to investigate whether liver function as determined by indocyanine green (ICG) clearance can be estimated quantitatively from magnetic resonance T1mapping with Gd-EOB-DTPA. We used Look-Locker sequences to acquire T1 mapping images pre and post-contrast at 5, 10, 15 and 20 minutes after Gd-EOB-DTPA administration, T1 relaxation times of the liver were measured, reduction rates of T1 relaxation times were calculated, our study showed that Gd-EOB-DTPA-enhanced T1mapping MRI is helpful for the quantitative evaluation of liver function, T1 relaxation time post-contrast at 20 minutes was the independent factor to predict ICG R15>20%.
