The LiverMultiScan is a contrast-free, noninvasive assessment that is leading the way in GI health. The LiverMultiScan takes measurements of your liver through a quick MRI scan where it is able to determine vital information that our GI specialists at GI Alliance of Illinois can use to determine the best ways to assist you in maintaining healthy liver function. Here are a few of the ways that the LiverMultiScan will measure the health of your liver and what it will include in its reports for your provider:

  • fat levels
  • iron levels
  • inflammation
  • scarring (fibrosis)

The LiverMultiScan in Chicago, IL, Peoria, IL, or Normal, IL, will provide your GI specialist with these measurements, along with a series of images of your liver, so they can have the most well-rounded picture of your current health needs and provide you with the best care possible.

At GI Alliance of Illinois, your comfort matters to us. Before the start of your scan, a trained MRI technologist will review with you exactly what you can expect during your LiverMultiScan. The technologist will help position you correctly on the scanning bed and provide you with a coil. A coil is a plastic belt that will be placed around your abdomen during the scan. They will also provide you with headphones so that you may communicate with the MRI technologist while the scan is taking place and a button in case you need to stop the scan prior to it being completed. The LiverMultiScan can be quite loud and the headphones will also help reduce the sounds you will hear while it captures the images it needs.

Once you feel comfortable and ready for the scan to begin, the MRI Technologist will position the bed in the center of the scanner and the LiverMultiScan will begin. Through the headphones, you will be given some instructions on things to do while your liver is being scanned. Some of these might include: lying still, breathing in and out, and holding your breath.

The GI specialists at GI Alliance of Illinois can use the LiverMultiScan to get a more complete picture of your liver tissue health by looking at the measurements of the fibro-inflammation, iron, and fat found in your liver tissue. The LiverMultiScan can assist our providers in making the most informed decisions about your GI health by providing additional imaging through this amazing noninvasive, state-of-the-art technology.

I was recommended to Dr Calandra by a friend after having a hard time making an appointment where I had my last procedure. The appointment process was easy and I was able to schedule an appointment at a time that worked for me. Everyone I dealt with was friendly and professional. From the receptionist, nurses and anesthesiologist- I felt in good care. Dr Calandra came in before and introduced himself and talked about the plan and put me at ease. After he came back in to give me results and answer any questions I had. I was on my way home within 1 hour of my appointment time. I also received an email with details of my visit. The whole process was easy and I’d definitely recommend Dr Calandra and his practice.
