Liver Stiffness and Portal Blood Flow in Healthy Controls

December 2010 to January 2011

MR elastography as well as PC-VIPR will be performed in 6 healthy controls as baseline measurements to compare with 80 patients that are being scanned following the same protocol. MR elastography will be used to determine liver stiffness and PC-VIPR will be used to determine portal blood flow.
