OBJECTIVE. The purposes of this article are to review currently available hepatobiliary contrast agents, discuss techniques for optimization of pediatric liver MRI with hepatobiliary contrast agents, and review the imaging features of several pediatric hepatic lesions, focusing on their assessment with hepatobiliary contrast agents. CONCLUSION. MRI is the preferred imaging modality for complete assessment of focal liver lesions in the pediatric population. Imaging with gadolinium-based hepatobiliary contrast agents yields beneficial information about many focal liver lesions encountered in pediatric patients.
