A fast and semi-automated MRI workflow for liver examinations with approximately 12mins of total examination time was proposed and evaluated with liver patients using CT or histo-pathology as reference. 28 patients suspected of liver disease were enrolled in this study. The results show a good concordance between findings on MRI and the chosen reference standard. This indicates that the proposed fast MRI workflow has the capability to be used for diagnostic purposes in clinical routine while being highly time efficient at the same time.
