There is insufficient knowledge on variability of MR Elastography (MRE) between different platforms. In this study, 6 underwent MRE on 1.5T Siemens and 3.0T GE systems using a 2D-GRE sequence. Liver and spleen stiffness values obtained from the 2 scanners were compared. Excellent concordance was observed between scanners (CV of 9.8% and 12.0% for liver and spleen, respectively). It remains to be seen whether different sequences on different platforms will provide similar results.
