Conclusion

The pandemic of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease on the development of chronic liver disease reinforces the validation of MR imaging-based biomarkers. Further, detection and quantification of hepatic iron is essential in patients with hereditary hemochromatosis and transfusional hemosiderosis. Accurate staging of the degree of fibrosis is essential in the management and determination of the prognosis of patients with chronic liver disease. Therefore, beyond the qualitative methods, a multiparametric quantitative MR Imaging protocol that includes assessment of fat, iron and fibrosis is the ideal evaluation of a patient with chronic liver disease.
