Author information

Department of Radiology, University of Yamanashi.


Since its launch onto the world medical market, gadoxetic acid has received a great deal of attention from a diverse group of researchers, including gastroenterologists, hepatologists, and abdominal radiologists. Gadoxetic acid in liver magnetic resonance (MR) imaging might be considered to have excellent utility. However, several issues remain that radiologists should keep in mind when utilizing this product. We compiled this review to introduce gadoxetic acid, describe how it should be used, highlight the situations in which it is most and least reliable, and suggest potential avenues for future research.
