Fewer Liver Biopsies

MRE for Pediatric Patients

MRE offers Radiologists and referrers a powerful new option for liver assessment in pediatric patients. This non-invasive approach can enable more frequent evaluation when closer monitoring is needed. By creating a visual representation of liver tissue stiffness, MRE helps radiologists deliver a more confident diagnosis at a lower cost and without the pain of needle biopsy.

Recognized by both Radiology and Gastroenterology societies as a vital tool for liver fibrosis assessment, MRE is poised to help tackle the growing epidemics of Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) and Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH).

How MRE Works

The image is captured in as little as 14 seconds, or one breath hold, in three steps:

A simple, drum-like driver generates acoustic waves within the tissue of interest.

 A special MRI technique images minute displacements of the tissue that result from wave propagation.

 An advanced mathematical

technique generates maps

of tissue stiffness, known as

“elastograms”.
