  • Experience. Mayo Clinic doctors and scientists invented MRE. Each year, Mayo specialists perform MRE on more than 600 people. MRE is available at all three Mayo Clinic locations.
  • Early detection. Magnetic resonance elastography can accurately identify liver fibrosis at an early stage, when treatment can still be effective.
  • Noninvasive. MRE offers a noninvasive alternative to taking a liver biopsy. Magnetic resonance elastography is easier, more comfortable and safer.
  • New ideas. Mayo imaging researchers are working with doctors from many specialties to improve this new technique and explore applications in other diseases, including Alzheimer's, heart failure and breast cancer.
