MRE (magnetic resonance elastography) and Fibroscan

Did anybody try magnetic resonance elastography? Is a special tool or this test can be done in a MRI center ?

magnetic resonance increases HCC risk so i didnt want to be monitored by any magnetic resonance, i prefer prevent HCC by gcmaf and very sensitive US

Did anybody try magnetic resonance elastography?
there is no such big improvment from normal fibroscan if you have the increased hcc risk i dont think it worths

i think a normal fibroscan is more than enough and has enough statistical studies to validate measures, i dont think the rest can see any follow up becaue fibroscan is already the main world standard

US is just trying to patent other useless products in some studies but that's wasted time and this is just because fibroscan is a french patented product

just checked this, Aixplorer, it is a french product just an evolution of norma fibroscan, so this is ok because the base is the same as fibroscan
........looks like a mixed of US and fibroscan

the researchers/doctors in pisa check the same points by US and fibroscan one after the other, i guess they get more info this way

the US products i refered to are others, those you posted are useful but good specialists should already make US and FB together
