    Notes: Abstract. The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of a superparamagnetic iron oxide, ferumoxides, in the detection and characterization of focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH) on MR conventional spin-echo (SE), fast spin-echo (FSE) and gradient-echo (GRE) images. Fourteen adults with 27 FNHs were evaluated at 1.5 T before and after injection of ferumoxides. T1-weighted and T2-weighted SE, T2-weighted FSE and T2*-weighted GRE sequences were used and analysed qualitatively and quantitatively. One hundred percent of FNHs showed a significant postcontrast decrease in signal intensity on T2- and T2*-weighted images. Heavily T2-weighted SE images showed the maximum decrease in FNH signal-to-noise ratio (S/N). Postcontrast GRE T2*-weighted images improved the detection of the central scar and the delineation of FNHs and demonstrated the best lesion-to-liver contrast-to-noise ratio (C/N). Postcontrast T1-weighted SE images showed the least lesion-to-liver C/N. Ferumoxides-enhanced MR imaging can help detect and characterize FNH. Conventional pre- and postcontrast T2-weighted SE images and postcontrast GRE T2*-weighted images should be used preferentially.
