In this study we have prospectively quantified advanced liver diffusion parameters including perfusion fraction, and diffusion coefficient using higher b-values (ADC High) in patients with liver cirrhosis and normal liver. Perfusion fraction was significantly lower in liver cirrhosis, demonstrating its potential utility for the diagnosis of cirrhosis.
