This study assessed the potential of MR T1rho for early liver fibrosis. Ten normal contrast (N), twelve patients with liver fibrosis stage F1 and seven with F2 took the MR T1rho scan. With the stage of liver fibrosis raising, T1rho value increased. And T1rho value of N vs. F1, N vs. F2 and N vs. F1-2 showed significant difference. And the AUC of N vs. F1, N vs. F2 and N vs. F1-2 were 0.858, 0.810, and 0.838. We conclude that MR T1rho has potential to diagnose the early stage of liver fibrosis.
