Magnetic Resonance Elastography (MRE) is an MRI-based technique that is used for the clinical diagnosis and staging of liver fibrosis by quantitatively measuring the stiffness of the liver. Due to the complexity of the signal characteristics and the presence of artifacts both in the acquired images and in the resulting stiffness images, the selection of the ROI for the stiffness measurement is currently performed manually, which may lead to significant inter- and intrareader variability.
