Magnetic resonance (MR) imaging provides exquisite, versatile, and unique soft tissue contrast, which allows for an effective evaluation of a wide range of liver disorders. A careful selection of imaging strategies can yield a comprehensive assessment of the liver in a reasonable examination time. Recent advances in MR hardware and software allow for rapid acquisition times that can reduce many of motion artifacts that previously posed limitations to abdominal MR imaging. The ability to obtain artifact-free images with sufficient contrast-to-noise ratios across a broad range of techniques is now feasible with rapid scanning. Recently, the use of 3T in liver imaging allows further improvement in image quality.
