A 32-year-old patient was referred to MR for abdominal pain.
The periphery of the liver enhanced during the successive
arterial phases, which is a strong indication of perihepatatis
(Figure 2). The portal and late phases do not show any
In this case, DISCO was particularly important to use in order
to not miss the arterial enhancement.
The DISCO sequence enables an increase in the sensitivity
with improved temporal resolution compared to standard
With DISCO, we can rapidly generate time-resolved 4D
images to meet the challenges of multi-dynamic imaging,
with volumes of 1.5 mm3 in as little as 4 seconds or less.
