A Study to Assess Multiparametric MR Elastography (MRE) in Diagnosing and Monitoring Cirrhosis or Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC) Patients
Tab Title Description
Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
- Observational study — observes people and measures outcomes without affecting results.
- Interventional study (clinical trial) — studies new tests, treatments, drugs, surgical procedures or devices.

About this study
The primary purpose of this study is to is to develop an advanced multiparametric liver magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) imaging technology for early identification of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) involvement, differentiation, and risks of microvascular invasion.
Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. There is no guarantee that every individual who qualifies and wants to participate in a trial will be enrolled. Contact the study team to discuss study eligibility and potential participation.
- Age ≥ 18 years old (HCC is rare in US children).
- Diagnosis of HCC with cross-sectional imaging or histology.
- 3D MRE of the liver was performed within 1 month of diagnosis.
- History of secondary hepatic malignancy.
- Any medical condition that, in the opinion of the Principal Investigators, would serve as exclusion criteria.
