The diagnostic criteria of splenic hemangioma is the delayed filling enhancement pattern on the dynamic contrast CT imaging or magnetic resonance (MR) T1-weighted image,which requires long examination time and thus decreases the MR scanning efficiency. Contrast-enhanced T2 fluid-attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) imaging is a new MR imaging technique that can be used to evaluate the intrinsic characteristics of hemangioma. However,few literature has discribed its role in diagnosing splenic hemangioma. In this article we reported one case of splenic hemangioma diagnosed by contrast-enhanced T2 FLAIR imaging,which reduced the MR scanning time and provided valuable experience for the diagnosis of splenic hemangioma.

Key words: splenic hemangioma, magnetic resonance imaging, fluid-attenuated inversion recovery imaging, diagnosis
