T1rho represents the spin-lattice relaxation time constant in the rotating frame, which sever as a biomarker for liver function associated with alteration in the macromolecular content of tissues. Diffusion kurtosis imaging (DKI) was developed to measure non-Gaussian diffusion, which have increasingly been used to characterize microstructural heterogeneity in vivo. Sinusoidal obstruction syndrome (SOS) is a dynamic process with complex histopathological changes in liver. Our study attempts to investigate the relationship between T1rho and DKI parameters in the light of pathological examinations to help us better understand the contribution of the possible factors to changes in T1rho.
