Abstract

Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) is the most accurate noninvasive technique in diagnosing fibrosis and cirrhosis in patients with chronic liver disease (CLD). The accuracy of hepatic MRE in distinguishing the severity of disease has been validated in studies of patients with various CLDs. Advanced hepatic MRE is a reliable, comfortable, and inexpensive alternative to liver biopsy for disease diagnosing, progression monitoring, and clinical decision making in patients with CLDs. This article summarizes current knowledge of the technical advances and innovations in hepatic MRE, and the clinical applications in various hepatic diseases.
