To study the concordance between diagnosis of hepatic cyst and hepatic hemangioma by using T2-FLAIR and multiphase contrasted MRI liver.
All cases for MRI liver who were diagnosed to be hepatic cyst and hepatic hemangioma by multiphase contrasted MRI liver and T2-FLAIR images form year 2014 to 2015 at Bangkok Hospital Headquarters, Bangkok, Thailand. The total 106 nodules were reviewed by two experienced radiologists and analyzed the new and previous reports for concordance and interpretation of the results.
The new reports from T2-FLAIR images compared with report from contrasted MRI liver. The findings of the concordance to be hemangioma are 73 nodules and hepatic cysts for 32 nodules. There is only one nodule which is not corresponding. Hence, the concordance of these two studies is 99.05%.
By using T2-FLAIR and contrasted MRI liver to differentiate of hepatic cysts and hemangioma, resulted in concordance of reading is 99.05%.
