Correlation between liver histology and novel magnetic resonance imaging in adult patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease - MRI accurately quantifies hepatic steatosis in NAFLD
Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics, 05/24/2012
Permutt Z et al. – Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)–determined proton density–fat fraction correlates with histology–determined steatosis grade in adults with non–alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Steatosis is non–linearly related to fibrosis progression. In patients with NAFLD, a low amount of hepatic steatosis on imaging does not necessarily indicate mild disease.
