This study aimed to test the reproducibility of DKI technique in normal liver and to explore the microscopic and diffusion differences between the left and right hepatic lobes.

32 healthy volunteers were scanned in DKI twice and the interval time was two weeks. All DKI-derived parametrical maps were reconstructed and mean values in eight liver segments were calculated.

We demonstrated that DKI in the liver showed excellent reproducibility between two measurements and found interesting regional distributions of the parameters in liver. Additionally, significant difference was found in DKI-derived parameters between the left and right hepatic lobes
