MRI Elastography detects early effects of liver fibrosis before changes are visible on other imaging exams.2 Elastography provides a non-invasive, safe global assessment of the entire liver and is performed as part of a comprehensive liver MRI. In addition to early detection, MRI Elastography provides a quantitative measurement of total liver stiffness and aids in selecting area for tissue biopsy. Highly reliable measurements are provided with little test-retest variation with results that may guide adjustments in patient therapy.
MRI Elastography is performed on 1.5T Wide Open MRI at the following locations:Methodist Specialty & Transplant Hospital
