MRI Technique for NAFLD in Children

2015 06 Feb

Researchers at UC San Diego School of Medicine have tested a new magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-based technique to better detect and evaluate nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in children. The new method is known as magnitude-based MRI, which was previously developed by researchers in the UC San Diego Liver Imaging Group, to estimate liver... Read more
