The Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology seeks adults, 18-75, with fatty liver disease for a research study. The purpose of the study is to compare LiverMultiScan, a type of MRI, to liver biopsy.
You may be eligible for this study if you are scheduled for a liver biopsy to evaluate fatty liver disease or NASH.
Study involves one visit to UVA, possibly on the same day of your biopsy. Blood will be drawn and a short MRI will be completed prior to your biopsy.
The study-related MRI and blood work will be provided free of charge.
