Liver imaging with multidetector helical computed tomography.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

The speed and flexibility of multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) have led to improvements in liver imaging, particularly related to the detection and characterization of focal lesions. This report discusses the different phase of liver enhancement following the bolus administration of iodinated contrast material, and the enhancement pattern of various liver lesions during these phases. We also propose guidelines for designing protocols for MDCT of the liver and discuss the principles of contrast media delivery.
