We present initial results of 2D MR elastography (MRE) and 3D MRE acquired in liver and spleen using a dual driver configuration in 13 subjects, 5 healthy and 8 with liver disease. 2D MRE showed a trend to higher stiffness in healthy subjects however in cirrhotic subjects liver stiffness was generally higher with 3D MRE. 3D MRE showed significantly higher liver stiffness in cirrhotic subjects compared to healthy subjects, with spleen stiffness also increased but not reaching significance. Coefficient of variation with single and dual drivers was 5% for liver and spleen in 2D and 3D MRE.
