MR elastography techniques for staging liver fibrosis assess the right liver and require additional hardware. MRI cine-tagging evaluates the strain of liver tissue and shows promise for staging liver fibrosis without additional hardware. It can be performed routinely during MRI examinations. Strain showed high correlation with fibrosis stages (ρ = -0.68, P < 0.0001). AUC was 0.81 to distinguish fibrosis stages F0 vs. ≥F1, 0.84 for ≤F1 vs. ≥F2, 0.86 for ≤F2 vs. ≥F3, and 0.87 for ≤F3 vs. F4. It could be used to assess the left liver lobe as a complement to MR elastography assessing the right lobe.
