OBJECTIVE

The purpose of this article is to provide a comprehensive overview of imaging findings in patients with hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis; and to describe which radiological/clinical modality is best for staging hepatic fibrosis.

CONCLUSION

MR elastography (MRE) appears to be the most reliable method for grading liver fibrosis, although the CT fibrosis score derived from the combination of caudate-to-right-lobe ratio and the diameters of the liver veins significantly correlates with the stage of fibrosis.
