There is a lengthy process for organ donor approval, and in the case of liver donors, especially invasive. Biopsies, catheter tests, ERCP, and many more tests are often used to make sure liver donors are viable.
Fortunately, researchers are testing whether or not MRI scans work as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for testing liver health in donors. Not only could this save time, this may also work to ensure the liver remains healthy. There would be no need for more potentially hazardous invasive procedures nor would patients undergo treatments that cause radiation. So far the review looks promising, make sure to read the full story.
