Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

High-quality MR imaging of the hepatobiliary system is increasingly being used to evaluate focal and diffuse liver disease in children. Advances in magnetic resonance hepatobiliary imaging including magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography, elastography, and iron quantification provide valuable noninvasive information about the bile ducts and hepatic parenchyma. This article discusses up-to-date MR imaging techniques and imaging findings of common diseases of the pediatric hepatobiliary system.
