MRI Triple Phase Liver

Overview Brief

Multiphase MRI is more useful than CT in detecting lesions. MRI triple phase liver is one such procedure.

What is MRI triple phase liver?

MRI triple phase liver is useful to visualize arterial phase hyperintense lesions.

  • MRI triple phase liver helps in the detection of liver cancers.
  • It can be used to detect different types of liver masses as well.
  • The procedure takes place in 3 phases– Arterial, Portal Venous and Equilibrium.

MRI triple phase liver uses the difference in blood supply to find the difference between pathology and normal parenchyma.

How is MRI triple phase liver performed?

When you arrive for your MRI triple phase liver, you will be taken into the MRI scan room:

  • You will be asked to lie down on your back on the table.
  • If a contrast dye is used, it will be injected into your vein.
  • You will be advised to lie as still as possible.
  • The table will be pushed under the machine.

Once you are in the position for an MRI triple phase liver, the technician begins the scan.

  • If you are claustrophobic, you will be given sedation or calming music to help deal with it.
  • You must not eat or drink anything for an hour or so before the MRI triple phase liver.
