Introduction: Standard MRI, including breath-hold techniques with SE T1 and T2 weighted images, biochemical shift, and 3D GRE and also T1 images after gadolinium enhancement Gd-DTPA, are useful in detecting liver lesions in patients with advanced GEP-NET. Recently, new algorithms of MRI, including diffusion-weighted imaging MRI (DWI) and i.v. (Gd-EOB)-DTPA (Primovist) contrast enhancement, seems to be promising in the detection of liver deposits.
