We used quantitative MR measures to assess changes in microstructure and haemodynamics in the liver and kidney of 60 patients with compensated cirrhosis (CC), 9 patients with decompensated cirrhosis (DC) and 40 healthy volunteers (HV). Liver T1 and perfusion was significantly reduced and renal T1 significantly increased with disease severity. In this prospective study, 1 in 6 CC patients have since had a Liver Related Outcome (LRO). These patients showed significant changes in baseline MR measures suggesting these MR measures in our multi-parametric MRI protocol can be used as a marker of LRO.
