This trial is testing two ways of looking inside the body at the liver. The research doctors hope to learn whether images from a CT scan or from an MRI scan provide the best information about liver status. To discover which is better, the images from both the CT and MRI scans will be compared to the actual liver after it is removed during transplant surgery and examined. With improved imaging methods, the study doctors believe they can better manage the liver transplant waitlist.
