Obesity is one of the greatest health risks and strongly related to fatty liver disease. Magnetic resonance imaging enables non-invasive measurement of fat-water distribution in tissue. To provide an automated evaluation of the liver volume and fat percentage, we trained a Multi-Dimensional Gated Recurrent Units network to segment multi-contrast data. The neural network was trained with a limited number of data comprising 52, 20, 10 datasets and was evaluated for liver volume and fat percentage quantification.
