Abstract

MR elastography is a constantly advancing technique for assessment of stiffness of tissues with newer technology and sequences. It is being increasingly used for the assessment of liver fibrosis. In this article, we discuss the advantages of MR elastography over biopsy and non-invasive methods such as US elastography in assessment of liver fibrosis. Image acquisition and interpretation for the liver MR elastography applications are also discussed.
