This study evaluated the feasibility of performing virtual elastography based on diffusion-weighted MRI (vMRE) on a 1.5T system with two different acceleration methods, SPEEDER and EXSPER. Proton density fat fraction (PDFF) imaging was also acquired. The vMRE and PDFF measurements were consistent with healthy values that can be found in the literature. This study demonstrated the feasibility of performing vMRE at 1.5T for the estimation of overall liver elasticity. SPEEDER and EXSPER vMRE implementations provided consistent stiffness estimations and both would be adequate for conducting future studies at 1.5T systems on patients.
