Row a: T1 weightedimages, Row b: T2 weightedI image, Row c: arterial phase image, Row d: potal venous phase image, Row e: hepatobiliary phase images; Row f: and Row g: T1 mapping of T1WI and hepatobiliary phase images; row h: corresponding pathological pictures. 1a-h, HCC (Edmondson-Steiner grade I). Lesion appeared hyperintense on routine sequences and hypointense in hepatobiliary-phase; T1p 892ms, T1e 388 ms, T1d = 504 ms, T1d % = 56.50 %; cells showed abundant cytoplasm and minimal nuclear irregularity. 2a-h, HCC (Edmondson-Steiner grade II), hypointense on T1WI and hepatobiliary phase images, “wash in and wash out”; T1p 1696 ms, T1e 1444 ms, T1d = 252 ms, T1d % = 14.90 %. 3a-h, HCC (Edmondson-Steiner grade III), hyperintense on T2WI images, hypointense on T1WI and hepatobiliary phase images; T1p 2134 ms, T1e 1494 ms,T1d = 640 ms,T1d % = 30.00 %. 2-h and 3-h, nuclear pleomorphism increased with increase in Edmondson-Steiner grade
