Overview

MRI findings of amoebic liver abscess include T1 weighted images with homogenous low signal intensity (signal homogeneity within the abscess can be present more often on T1- than on T2-weighted images) and T2 images are generally homogeneous with high signal intensity and perilesional edema may be seen in half of the cases.[1][2]

MRI

MRI findings of amoebic liver abscess include:[1][2]

  • T1: Homogenous low signal intensity (signal homogeneity within the abscess can be present more often on T1- than on T2-weighted images)
  • T2: Generally homogeneous high signal intensity; perilesional edema may be seen in half of the cases
