New Study Open for LiverMultiScan™ – Are You Eligible?

Perspectum Diagnostics has opened a new LiverMultiScan study. Please see the Q & A below for more information on this opportunity.

Can I be Involved?

If you are over 18 years of age, have a diagnosed liver condition and are willing to travel to Cambridge for a study session, you may be eligible to take part.

What does the study involve?

This study aims to find out whether multi-parametric MRI imaging of the liver gives the same results when it is repeated on the same person after a short break and when it is performed on the same person in different MRI scanners.

The study will involve having six 10 minute MRI scans. The entire study visit should take no longer than 2 ½ hours. Participants will be asked not to eat or drink anything for 4 hours before the scans.

What is LiverMultiScan?

LiverMultiScan is a piece of software which analyses standard MRI images of the liver and produces parametric maps of liver tissue characteristics. It can quantify the amount of fat within the liver. It also quantifies other measures which correlate to levels of iron, inflammation and fibrosis within the liver.

Is there any benefit to me for taking part?

Your travel expenses will be covered in full, including a night over in a hotel for you and a companion if needed, and a light meal after your scans. You would also be helping in an important piece of research into a non-invasive diagnostic tool for assessing the health of the liver.
