This is a qualitative study to determine which factors affect the patient experience of having a liver MRI, what information patients would like to receive after their MRI, and how patients would like this information communicated to them.
This is a qualitative study to determine which factors affect the patient experience of having a liver MRI, what information patients would like to receive after their MRI, and how patients would like this information communicated to them. Each individual will receive at least an MRI scan (LiverMultiScan), with many also receiving a FibroScan (Transient Elastography). Patients will then undergo a focused qualitative interview, as well as filling out a questionnaire. The interviews will be thematically analysed and trends identified by significance.

Recent, research has focused on the evaluation of non-invasive methods for the assessment of liver fibrosis in patients with chronic liver disease. Among these methods, transient elastogra...
The main objective is to compare the accuracy of transient elastography taking into account liver steatosis determined by MRI, to liver biopsy for the diagnosis of liver fibrosis ≥F2 in ...
Patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) have an ineffective hemopoiesis and often suffer from anemia. This can lead to red blood cell transfusion dependency and iron overload. Iron ov...
Prospective screening study at Odense University Hospital to assess the effect of transient elastography and other serum and imaging markers of liver fibrosis to detect advanced fibrosis (...
To determine if transient elastography (TE), when combined with ultrasound (US) pattern characterization can improve the prediction of progression to a nodular pattern on US. To confirm t...
The incidence and prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) are increasing and identification of people at risk of disease progression is extremely important. The current gold standard fo...
Vibration-controlled transient elastography (VCTE) estimates liver stiffness measurement (LSM) and controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) which are noninvasive assessments of hepatic fibrosis and stea...
Guidelines recommend evaluating persistent alteration of liver tests in HCV-infected patients after sustained virological response (SVR) and its influence on liver disease progression. We studied the ...
Ultrasound and magnetic resonance (MR)-based elastography have demonstrated excellent performance for noninvasive staging of fibrosis in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD); however...
We investigated the utility of transient elastography for diagnosing biliary atresia (BA) in cholestatic infants and predicting the outcome of BA. Forty-eight cholestatic infants (9-87 days of age) wi...
Liver diseases caused by infections with PARASITES, such as tapeworms (CESTODA) and flukes (TREMATODA).
Liver diseases associated with ALCOHOLISM. It usually refers to the coexistence of two or more subentities, i.e., ALCOHOLIC FATTY LIVER; ALCOHOLIC HEPATITIS; and ALCOHOLIC CIRRHOSIS.
Yellow discoloration of the SKIN; MUCOUS MEMBRANE; and SCLERA in the NEWBORN. It is a sign of NEONATAL HYPERBILIRUBINEMIA. Most cases are transient self-limiting (PHYSIOLOGICAL NEONATAL JAUNDICE) occurring in the first week of life, but some can be a sign of pathological disorders, particularly LIVER DISEASES.
A spectrum of clinical liver diseases ranging from mild biochemical abnormalities to ACUTE LIVER FAILURE, caused by drugs, drug metabolites, and chemicals from the environment.
A spectrum of clinical liver diseases ranging from mild biochemical abnormalities to ACUTE LIVER FAILURE, caused by drugs, drug metabolites, herbal and dietary supplements and chemicals from the environment.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
