Hepatic infarction: MRI appearance

Author and Disclosure Information


Because the liver is supplied with portal venous as well as hepatic arterial blood, hepatic infarction is a rare occurrence. Prior to the use of computed tomography (CT), ante mortem diagnosis of this entity was unusual. The CT findings in liver infarction have been described. However, the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearance has not been well characterized or illustrated. We present the CT and MRI findings of a biopsy-proven case of hepatic infarction.
