Multi-parametric MR including MR elastography (MRE), IDEAL IQ and diffusion weighted image were performed in patients with chronic liver disease. Among them, 15 patients were treated with antiviral agents which could improve liver fibrosis. In patients who underwent antiviral treatment, liver stiffness measured by MRE after treatment was significantly decreased. Liver stiffness in non-treated group and other MR parameters in both groups were not significantly changed. In conclusion, MRE could be used for the response evaluation of antiviral therapy in patients with chronic hepatitis
