We aim to assess the utility of whole-liver texture analysis on T1 maps for the risk stratification of advanced fibrosis in patients with suspected NAFLD. Our experiments show that whole-liver histogram and texture parameters of T1 maps can distinguish NAFLD patients with an intermediate-to-high risk of advanced fibrosis. A combination of histogram and texture parameters as a multivariate model showed a better diagnostic performance than any sole parameter and noninvasive fibrosis test in risk stratification of advanced fibrosis.
