MR Elastography is currently the most accurate non-invasive technique for assessment of liver fibrosis. In this study, we investigated whether administration of gadolinium for routine MRI studies affects the stiffness values estimated. Our study results show that intravenous gadolinium does not affect stiffness values estimation and diagnostic performance of MRE for detection of liver fibrosis.
