Among various noninvasive methods for liver fibrosis quantification, we compared liver stiffness measured from MR elastography and multiple serum fibrosis markers including APRI, FIB-4, and King' score for liver fibrosis prediction. Our results showed than MR elastography performed better than serum fibrosis indices in discerning clinically significant fibrosis (≥ F3) and liver cirrhosis (≥ F4) in chronic hepatitis B patients.
