What is LiverMultiScan?
LiverMultiScan is the leading noninvasive 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 that are linked to levels of fat, iron, inflammation, and scarring (fibrosis). The LiverMultiScan is:
- A safe and non-invasive assessment
- Able to aid clinicians in the diagnosis of liver disorders
- A quick MRI scan
If you have additional questions about LiverMultiScan, please contact a local gastroenterologist through GI Alliance.
How does LiverMultiScan work?
An MRI technologist will help you to get into a comfortable position on the scanning bed and 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 MRI 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 MRI 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 can the LiverMultiScan 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. If you would like to know more about how the LiverMultiScan can help you, please contact your local GI Alliance and speak to an expert gastroenterologist.
Advanced diagnostic tools
The LiverMultiScan is available to any patients referred by a physician for an MRI to assess their liver health. Patients with a wide variety of liver conditions can access the LiverMultiScan and gain valuable insights into their condition. As a diagnostic tool, the LiverMultiScan is noninvasive and provides patients and doctors with the knowledge they require to continue or begin treatment. To learn more about LiverMultiScan and other innovative procedures for treating conditions of the GI tract, contact an expert gastroenterologist through your local GI Alliance.
