Four pulse sequences necessary for liver MRI interpretation
Keywords:Liver MRI, Pulse sequences, Liver mass.
MRI is the best imaging modality for detection and characterization of liver masses. There are multiple pulse sequences used in MRI and they can be confusing and difficult to understand. Therefore, four important pulse sequences are introduced in this article in order to simplify the seemingly complex pulse sequences, and allow general radiologists and clinicians of all specialties to approach MRI of liver masses with ease.
