Abstract

MRE is a commercially available technique for quantitatively assessing liver shear stiffness. The premise of the examination is based on the observation that fibrosis is associated with elevated liver stiffness and significantly different from normal liver parenchyma. Increasingly, MRE plays a role in detection of liver fibrosis, prediction of decompensation of liver disease as well as in further workup of liver masses. Several novel applications of MRE may be possible allowing for its increased role in management of persons with chronic liver disease.
