PURPOSE To validate an MRI technique for measuring liver fat content by calibrating MRI readings with liver phantoms and comparing MRI measurements in human subjects with estimates of liver fat content on liver biopsy specimens. MATERIALS AND METHODS The MRI protocol consisted of fat and water imaging by selective saturation using a 3.0-T scanner. A water phantom and liver phantoms were scanned before each of 10 human subjects who underwent a liver biopsy to assess for nonalcoholic fatty… CONTINUE READING
