Abstract Gadobenate dimeglumine (Gd-BOPTA) is a commercialised hepatobiliary contrast agent used during liver magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to detect liver diseases. It enters into human hepatocytes through organic anion transporting polypeptides (OATP1B1/B3) and crosses the canalicular transporter multiple resistance-associated protein 2 (MRP2) to be excreted into bile canaliculi. Gd-BOPTA can return to sinusoids via the sinusoidal transporters MRP3/MRP4. Hepatocyte concentrations of Gd-BOPTA depend on three clearances: the sinusoidal clearance or volume of sinusoidal blood cleared of drugs per unit of time and two hepatocyte clearances (into bile canaliculi or back to sinusoids) or volume of hepatocytes cleared of drugs per unit of time in the respective liver compartments. The present study investigates whether changing liver blood flow modifies hepatocyte concentrations when plasma concentrations do not change.
