Good diagnostic accuracy with non-invasive Multiparametric MRI across a range of liver disease severity
- July 10, 2018
Research led by two leading tertiary UK liver centres, Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, showed that multiparametric MRI performed well as a diagnostic tool to quantify liver disease.
The study showed that LiverMultiScan™ had excellent test-retest reliability and good accuracy for quantifying fat and fibro-inflammatory injury in the liver. These findings also correlated well with the gold standard microscopic assessment of liver tissue samples.
LiverMultiScan is an emerging point-of-care diagnostic tool for the assessment of liver fibrosis and offers a superior technical success rate and contemporaneous measurement of liver steatosis and iron accumulation.
