Liver stiffness measurement (LSM) using magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) can estimate the degree of liver fibrosis. We retrospectively evaluate the prognostic role of LSM using MRE in compensated chronic liver disease patients. A total of 217 patients with compensated chronic liver disease who underwent MRE were included. After a mean and median follow-up of 44.5±17.8 months and 46.0 months, LSM value obtained from MRE was turned out to be significant predictive factor for overall survival, development of hepatic decompensation and occurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma.
