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.
