MR Touch helps you identify variations in liver tissue stiffness.
Patients who suffer from chronic liver diseases such as fibrosis and cirrhosis often require ongoing observation by a gastroenterologist. This can entail invasive procedures that don’t always provide a full picture of the liver. MR Touch, developed
by GE with the Mayo Clinic, approaches liver exams by using acoustic waves to identify variations in tissue stiffness. This provides an Elastrogram, an anatomical depiction of the tissue stiffness of the liver. The Elastrogram provides radiologists
and gastroenterologists additional input to help them make informed decisions about treatment. The image is captured in as little as 14 seconds, one short breath-hold.

For Referring Physicians: A sound alternative MR Touch gives referring physicians a powerful new option for liver assessment. This non-invasive examination can help minimize discomfort and reduce the potential risk of infection,
while enabling more frequent evaluation when closer monitoring is needed.
For Radiologists: A sound diagnosis By creating a profound visual representation of liver tissue stiffness, MR Touch may help radiologists deliver a more confident diagnosis. At the same time, it can help expand the role of radiology
into new areas.
For Administrators: A sound investment MR Touch enables diagnostic procedures at a lower cost than common techniques. Both comprehensive and non-invasive, the technique can appeal to patients and referring physicians, helping to drive
additional procedures, referrals, and revenue.
