Accurate and precise 3D T1 mapping of the human liver at 3T using widely available magnetic resonance imaging methods

Abstract:

Better diagnostic and treatment methods are needed to counteract the steep increase of liver diseases. A promising non-invasive biomarker for the diagnosis of liver diseases is the longitudinal relaxation time (T1) of liver tissue, measured through quantitative magnetic resonance imaging. T1 correlates with liver fibrosis and inflammation. However, non-contrast T1 mapping is currently restricted to a single slice cross sectioning the liver and uses special...
