Question
Can an MRI without contrast identify a fatty liver?

Answer
Hi, Sarah.

To my knowledge, yes; an MRI without contrast can identify a fatty liver. However, I am only the photographer. I am not trained to interpret the images.

For a definitive answer, you should ask a radiologist. There may be cases of which I'm not aware where contrast is necessary.

Hope this helps,

I now have more than 30 years experience in diagnostic imaging. My specialty is MRI. I am also very familiar with CT and the way we used to take x-rays (everything's digital now)!
