Selection of the appropriate imaging tool depends on a number of factors that reflect the patient, the procedure, and the physician. Multiple imaging techniques are often required to perform elements of a whole procedure. A patient with an allergy to iodinated contrast material and a 3.0-cm hepatic metastasis that was invisible on computed tomography (CT) was treated with CT-guided radiofrequency ablation by first injecting gadolinium under magnetic resonance guidance to mark the location of the lesion. Gadolinium's high atomic number makes it a viable contrast agent for attenuating x rays under fluoroscopic or CT guidance.
