In this article, we compare the diagnostic efficiency of T1rho, ultrasonic elastography (UE) and the combination of them in staging liver fibrosis. Thirty-two patients with chronic hepatitis B underwent T1rho MRI and UE were analyzed. T1rho is better than UE in staging liver fibrosis, and the combination of T1ho and UE can improve the diagnostic efficiency in differentiating F1 from F2-4.
