Newly developed mFFE can provide consistent fat fraction regardless of T2* or T1 alteration of the liver tissue as compared to conventional dFFE, and therefore is particularly useful in evaluation of steatosis in chronic hepatitis C or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis patients, in whom considerable amount of iron may also acculmulate in the liver.
