Imaging features of small (≤3 cm) pancreatic solid tumors on gadoxetic-acid-enhanced MR imaging and diffusion-weighted imaging: an initial experience

Magnetic Resonance Imaging, 04/13/2012

Gadoxetic–acid–enhanced MRI may aid in differentiation between small adenocarcinomas, neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and solid pseudopapillary tumors (SPTs) based on morphologic features with dynamic enhancement pattern in adenocarcinomas, dynamic enhancement pattern with tumor–to–parenchyma ration on arterial and portal phases in NETs, and dynamic enhancement pattern with lower apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) value in SPTs.
