Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
MRI in determining the accumulation of fat in the liver and to characterize the most specific imaging modality used today. MRI in children and adults, the safe use of ionizing radiation-free because of, the reproducibility of the offers. MRI, T1 relaxation and chemical shift according to their oil from other molecules. Observations on conventional T1-weighted fat in the liver, is considered to be an increased intensity of conventional studies demonstrating the sensitivity of fatty liver disease is low. MRI and MRS chemical shift imaging to determine the amount of oil used in the methods. This is basically two methods, the triglyceride fatty acid chains of methylene groups (-CH2) protons in the water (OH) protons in the diversity of oscillation frequencies, ie the chemical shift due to these differences are based on separation of water and fat molecules.
