In assessing the fibrosis grades of the liver in
patients with chronic liver diseases, 3.0T MR
elastography with multi-model direct inversion algorithm
provides stiffness map with less image defects,
comparable measurable areas, and slightly less stiffness
value of the liver, as compared to that with
conventional multi-scale direct inversion algorithm.
