Evaluation of liver reserve function is crucial for patients with cirrhosis and is helpful for the determination of the surgical plan formulation, the evaluation of treatment process and prognosis, and the operation of cirrhosis. However, there is still lacking a clinically useable non-invasive technique to measure the abnormality of liver function. The purpose of this study is to investigate the potential correlation between T1/T2 relaxation time and liver function indexes in patients with cirrhosis using MR T1/T2 mapping. We found that there was a moderate correlation between T1/T2 relaxation time and liver function assay indexes in liver cirrhosis.
