How LiverMultiScan® can aid clinicians in the diagnosis of liver disorders
LiverMultiScan® can be an effective diagnostic aid for clinicians managing patients with liver disease. It allows the safe and non-invasive characterization of liver tissue, across the whole liver, with a high degree of sensitivity and reproducibility.
LiverMultiScan provides quantitative measures of liver fat, and correlates of iron, fibrosis and inflammation using multi-parametric MRI, which can aid you in making diagnoses and in monitoring liver disease.
Whilst liver biopsy remains an important tool in the evaluation of liver conditions, the rising burden of liver disease, and in particular non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), calls for simpler and lower-risk strategies to managing these disorders that meet the needs of clinicians and patients.
- Rapid quantitative assessment of liver tissue properties (LiverMultiScan MRI protocol takes as little as 15 minutes), results can be available within 24 hours.
- Imaging whole cross-sections of the liver to assess regional and heterogeneous disease.
- You to give patients a greater insight to their disease, through patient-centric visual reports.
Studies of LiverMultiScan support the rationale for it's use to stratify liver disease patients, and to help clinicians determine the patients who should be referred for further investigations, e.g. biopsy, and those with a lower risk of progression who may not require a biopsy at that time. Patients may not need to undergo unnecessary procedures, saving valuable health care resources.
LiverMultiScan is contrast-free and therefore ideal for patients who are contraindicated for magnetic resonance contrast agents. LiverMultiScan is standardized across MRI manufacturers and field strengths. LiverMultiScan does not require additional hardware and is available as a Quantitative Analysis Service offering, with reports delivered in as little as 24 hours.
Full cross-sectional imaging provides unparalleled insight into your patients' liver health, giving you the power to see patchy liver disease, whilst also delivering non-subjective quantification of their liver tissue. Metrics of fat and correlates of iron, fibrosis and inflammation, as well as the rich visual images, will help your patient engagement and may help your clinical management.
