I was in Oxford yesterday to take part in the liver multiscan research. It merely consists of you having an MRI but the results far more informative and may even lead to a large reduction in the number of biopsies. This is especially useful for me as I am considered too much of a risk because of clotting problems.
They are a really lovely group of people and answer any questions at any point. The results of your scan are sent to you once they have been scrutinised by a specialist. However, you are given the basic information there and then.
I have information to show my doctors that they didn't know.
The more people who take part, the more proof they can show proof of the effectivenessand cost saving to the NHS to persuade specialists how helpful a diagnostic and monitoring tool it is.
They did say that they are having problems getting enough patients with NAFLD in particular so if you can help please consider it.
You have an MRI and answer questions about your experience- no effort at all.
All expenses are paid and they even pay for a B&B if you travel a long distance.
Anyone at all interested the details are below, it costs nothing to contact them for information.
