Stratification of disease severity in patients with liver fibrosis, cirrhosis and portal hypertension using novel multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging techniques

Abstract:

Chronic liver diseases (CLDs) affect millions worldwide and are a major cause of mortality. Recently, multiparametric magnetic resonance (MR) methods have been proposed as a non-invasive, quantitative biomarker for assessment of CLD. CLD traverses a spectrum of severity, and the aim of this thesis was to apply MR methods across this spectrum for a quantitative assessment of disease severity. The primary variable of interest was the iron and field strength corrected T1 (cT1), generated by Liv...
