This study demonstrates that the MRI T1 reduction rate, based on T1 mapping before and after GD-EOB-DTPA, allows an accurate analysis of liver function and may be used interchangeably at 1.5T and 3T without image post-processing. T1 reduction rate was able to distinguish patients with no liver disease, patients with CLD and patients with liver cirrhosis Child A-C from one another.
