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.
