Figure 5 MRI and DWI of hepatic metastases. A: T1-weighted; B: T2-weighted; C: Diffusion weighted image (b-value 50 s/mm2); D: Diffusion weighted image (b-value 1000 s/mm2) in a 74-year-old woman with a history of rectal cancer, recently diagnosed with lung and liver metastases in segment 4 and 8, respectively. The lesions are hypo-intense to the liver parenchyma on the T1-weighted image and hyper-intense on the T2-weighted image. On the diffusion weighted image at a b-value 50 s/mm2, both lesions appear hyper-intense, but at a b-value 1000 s/mm2, only the lesion in segment 4 remains hyper-intense. The lesion in segment 8 has completely disappeared.
