MR Elastography was invented at Mayo Clinic. It is widely available to clinicians at over 1,600 locations across the globe and is the only MRI technology that has been validated for staging liver fibrosis. Clinicians and patients can find U.S. locations at MRE:connect. The role of MRE has been increasingly recognized in multidisciplinary clinical guidelines for routine liver fibrosis assessment, particularly in suspected cases of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). The American College of Radiology issued Appropriateness Criteria® that identify MRE as the most accurate and applicable noninvasive liver fibrosis exam. MRE is reimbursed via a Category I CPT® code (76391) and is covered by numerous public and private insurance plans.
