When applying MR elastography (MRE) in pancreas, the waves propagated in individuals with high Body Mass Index (BMI) tend to travel longer distances with more challenges. In this study, we performed MRE in 18 obese subjects before and after an administration of a 75 g oral glucose load (OGL), and we found that 40Hz had better wave image quality than 60Hz and was more sensitive to detect the stiffness decrease after OGL.
