In this age of specialized imaging sequences such as liver MR elastography, inexperience with the technical image acquisition and unawareness of artifacts and pitfalls confound diagnostic accuracy due to poor image quality. We feel there is a knowledge gap in those at the front line involved with image acquisition, and that by defining and filling in this knowledge gap with an educational tutorial module, MR elastography image quality can be optimized and callback rates can be decreased. In turn, decreased callbacks will translate into reduced cost for unnecessary repeated scans; reduced patient time and frustration; and increased MR scheduling access.
