Mayo Clinic doctors and scientists are studying new ways of diagnosing and treating nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. Research areas include studying the causes of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and improving diagnosis of the disease through the use of noninvasive testing with magnetic resonance elastography, among others.
See a list of publications by Mayo Clinic authors on nonalcoholic fatty liver disease on PubMed, a service of the National Library of Medicine.
