Functional MRC With Eovist for Acute Cholecystitis
Accuracy of Functional MRC With Gadoxetate Disodium in the Diagnosis of Acute Cholecystitis: Comparison With Hepatobiliary Scintigraphy
Functional magnetic resonance cholangiography (fMRC) with gadoxetate disodium (Eovist) is an accurate method of diagnosing acute cholecystitis.
Primary Objective: To determine the accuracy of fMRC in evaluating patients with suspected cholecystitis. Secondary Objective: To compare the results of fMRC with conventional hepatobiliary scintigraphy.
