What can LiverMultiScan® bring to my radiology practice?

LiverMultiScan® is a digital imaging technology that uses multiparametric Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to characterize the liver, enabling physicians to consistently quantify evidence of liver disorders, such as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and hepatitis.

With LiverMultiScan, radiologists can leverage existing MR infrastructure to service the growing market of obesity-linked chronic liver disease.

It is estimated that 1 in 5 Americans have liver disease, and the incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), NASH and liver cirrhosis is projected to rise dramatically in the next 10 years. Diagnostic tests that enable early and accurate identification and staging of disease are key to earlier intervention and prevention of advanced disease which is costly for health care systems and for patients.

LiverMultiScan can quantify measures of liver fat, and correlates of hepatic iron, fibrosis and inflammation to help you assess a patient’s liver health across the disease spectrum. The quantitative reports and rich visual format can aid diagnosis of disease and help physicians to assess the efficacy of treatment plans.

LiverMultiScan does not require additional hardware and is available as a Quantitative Analysis Service, with reports delivered in as little as 24 hours.

How LiverMultiScan can help your patients and your practice

  • No new hardware required - an immediate cash flow positive service.
  • Readily integrated into your current abdominal MR imaging protocols.
  • Takes 15 minutes per patient – allowing 4 scans per hour.
  • Compatible with the latest MRI hardware and software.
  • Standardized metrics across multiple MRI vendors.
  • Non-contrast, non-invasive.
  • Referring physician and patient-friendly report available within 24 hours.
  • Highly repeatable and reproducible.

Full cross-sectional imaging provides unparalleled insight into your patients, giving you the power to see patchy liver disease, whilst also delivering non-subjective quantification of liver tissue characteristics. It allows you to scan patients unable to be effectively imaged by other methods such as ultrasound or Magnetic Resonance Elastography. Our protocol takes just 10 minutes, which can be added onto an existing abdominal MR, and allows you to grow your service by leveraging our imaging corelab.

Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD)

NAFLD Patient: Meet Mary
Mary was a 57 year-old NAFLD patient who made lifestyle changes in response to seeing her Liver_MultiScan _report. LiverMultiScan was carried out at two time points and shows a change in metrics of liver health as a result of lifestyle interventions.

"Had it not been for Liver_MultiScan _I might never have discovered the state of my liver. I can thoroughly recommend it as a diagnostic tool, especially compared to an invasive biopsy. It is just a quick scan."
