What is LiverMultiScan?
LiverMultiScan is the leading non-invasive assessment of the liver. LiverMultiScan produces a report with measurements of your liver tissue health. This is done using a quick MRI scan that does not require any injections of contrast agents. The report includes a series of images of your liver, and measurements which are linked to levels of fat, iron, inflammation and scarring (fibrosis).
- Safe and non-invasive assessment
- Aids clinicians in diagnosis of liver disorders
- Quick MRI scan
What will happen during the scan?
A MR Technologist will help you to get into a comfortable position on the scanning bed, you will have a plastic belt (known as a coil) placed on your abdomen. You will be given headphones so that you can talk to the MR Technologist during the scan. You will also be given a button to press in case you want to come out of the scanner before the scan is finished.
Once you are comfortable the MR Technologist will move the bed into the center of the scanner. You will be asked to lie still, breathe in and out and hold your breath while your liver is scanned. It is quite noisy inside the scanner, but the headphones will help to reduce the volume.
What will the results show?
LiverMultiScan gives three measures of liver tissue health which correspond to levels of fibro-inflammation, iron, and fat in your liver.
Information provided by LiverMultiScan can be used as an additional diagnostic input giving your clinician a better understanding of your liver health and helping them make a more informed decision, leaving you with peace of mind.
Who can have a LiverMultiScan?
Anyone referred by a physician for an MRI to assess their liver health.
