Figure 1
Figure 1 T2-weighted imaging with 3. 0 Tesla. In the absence of dedicated technical solutions, T2-weighted images at 3.0 Tesla (T) (A) are at risk of typical artefacts (namely standing-wave artefacts) causing signal drop-out over the field of view, especially left liver lobe. Focal liver lesions might be masked accordingly. The artefact is not present at 1.5 T (B).

Figure 2 T1-weighted post-contrast imaging at 3. 0 Tesla. Compared to 1.5 Tesla (T) (A), post-contrast images acquired on 3.0 T magnets (B) show sharper details, as exemplified in this patient with chronic liver disease showing multiple artero-portal shunts.
