Aim of our study was to evaluate confounding factors for the assessment of liver fibrosis. A total of 200 patients were retrospectively included (67 patients with fibrosis or cirrhosis, 40 patients with acute elevation of laboratory parameters, 93 healthy patients). T1 values were significantly lower in healthy patients without known fibrotic changes than in patients with acute liver disease or known fibrosis or cirrhosis. Therefor T1 mapping seems to be a capable predictor for the detection of liver fibrosis and cirrhosis.
