Figure 5 Liver abscesses complicating acute cholangitis in a 79-year-old man. A: DWI at b = 1000 s/mm2 shows multiple liver abscesses with high signal intensity (arrowheads); B: Multiple abscesses with peripheral rim enhancement (arrowheads) are less conspicuous on contrast-enhanced fat-saturated T1-weighted images (B) than on DWI (A); C: On an ADC map, multiple abscesses appear as low signal intensity (arrowheads) due to restriction of diffusion. DWI: Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging; ADC: Apparent diffusion coefficient.
