Of all malignant lesions occurring in the liver, metastases are far more frequent than primary liver malignancy. PET/MR imaging leads to a high degree of sensitivity and accuracy in detecting liver metastases and offers better lesion delineation compared with other modalities. The inclusion of diffusion-weighted imaging demonstrating restricted diffusion leads to even higher accuracy in metastatic detection.
