Magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) accurately measures liver stiffness and correlates with liver histopathology. However, conventional gradient-echo (GRE) MRE sequences require multiple breath-holds. Spin-echo echo-planar-imaging (SE-EPI) MRE only requires a single breath-hold. In this study we compared 2D SE-EPI and 2D rapid-GRE MRE sequences at 3T in healthy children and children with suspected fibrosis. Both SE-EPI and rapid-GRE had good repeatability, reproducibility, inter-reader agreement, and quantitative agreement in liver stiffness. SE-EPI provided larger measurable liver ROI sizes than rapid-GRE. SE-EPI may be desirable for measuring fibrosis in children with limited or inconsistent breath-hold ability and reduce scan times.
