Abstract

This case report describes a case of a 38-year-old woman with hepatic adenomatosis. MRI revealed five hyperintense nodular liver lesions on T1-weighted images which were hypo-isointense with the liver parenchyma on T2-weighted images. Serial gadolinium-enhanced images did not reveal distinctive imaging findings. With the use of superparamagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) particles, hyperintense adenomas revealed signal loss on T1-weighted images after SPIO. Two subcapsular adenomas were resected based on MRI findings and histopathology confirmed MRI diagnosis.
