There is a clinical need for a non-invasive diagnostic test to assess spleen function. Quantitative splenic hemodynamics, assessed using non-contrast 4D flow MRI, demonstrate differences between patients with severe and mild thrombocytopenia and may be useful to distinguish patients with hypersplenism associated thrombocytopenia from those with thrombopoetin deficiency.
