An accurate early diagnosis(<24h of admission) of acute pancreatitis is clinically important. Our work shows that MR elastography has significantly better diagnostic performance for detecting AP than that achieved using the conventional CT/MR imaging, with improved sensitivity and accuracy. Early MRE is a promising technique to diagnose AP in a noninvasive fashion on admission.
