Background: Liver graft fibrosis affects long-term graft and patient survival in liver transplant recipients. Transient elastography and magnetic resonance elastography are widely used for the assessment of liver fibrosis in routine clinical practice, but are limited in liver transplant settings. The aims of the present study were to evaluate the accuracy of magnetic resonance elastography and transient elastograph in the assessment of liver fibrosis in liver transplant recipients, and to determine the recurrence rates of post-transplant hepatic steatosis and liver fibrosis.
