Medical records are reviewed to obtain information about the use of a MRI diagnostic imaging agent (contrast agent) called Primovist/Eovist in children older than 2 months and less than 18 years. Data that has been recorded in the child's medical records relating to the injection of Primovist/Eovist will be collected. Information will be collected from up to 2 weeks before the child received Primovist/Eovist until 12 months after the child received Primovist/Eovist. Copy of the child's MR images that were taken right before and after the child received Primovist/Eovist and all other reports (laboratory reports, other imaging reports, etc) that are part of the child's medical records during that time period will be collected.

Further study details as provided by Bayer:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Additional diagnostic information obtained from the combined precontrast and postcontrast images as compared with the precontrast images. To be determined by an independent blinded read. [ Time Frame: When precontrast and postcontrast images are available for all enrolled subjects ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Additional safety information [ Time Frame: 24 hours pre Eovist/Primovist administration to 1 year post Eovist/Primovist administration ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • For the pre-vs.combined pre-and postcontrast images,comparison of any change in the diagnosis, diagnostic confidence and management/therapy; any malignant or nonmalignant lesions detected on the combined pre-and post-images not detected on the pre-images [ Time Frame: When precontrast and postcontrast images are available from all enrolled subjects ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • For the postcontrast images only, the overall image quality [ Time Frame: When precontrast and postcontrast images are available from all enrolled subjects ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Serious Adverse Events collection [ Time Frame: End of Study (on average 1 year post Primovist/Eovist MRI) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Biospecimen Retention:   None Retained

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Group 1 Drug: Gadoxetic Acid Disodium (Primovist/Eovist, BAY86-4873)

Sampling Method:   Non-Probability Sample
Study Population

Pediatric subjects who have had a Primovist/Eovist enhanced MRI for known or suspected focal liver disease


Inclusion Criteria:

  • Age >2 months and <18 years of age at the time of the Primovist/Eovist enhanced MRI
  • MRI with Primovist/Eovist due to suspected or known focal liver lesions
  • Evaluable safety data
  • Evaluable efficacy data: precontrast and postcontrast magnetic resonance (MR) images must be available for review
  • If the above criteria are met, the principal investigator (PI) and/or designee will obtain a signed consent for medical records release including access to anonymized electronic copies of the pre- and post-Primovist/Eovist MRI scans, in accordance with local regulatory requirements in order for subjects to be enrolled in the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • A subject will be excluded from this observational / retrospective study if the subject has previously been enrolled into this study. Subjects may only be entered once into this study, even if they have been imaged multiple times and for different indications.
