  1. MRI sequences used; the length of each of the sequences ranged from 12 - 45 seconds. FIESTA = fast imaging employing steady state acquisition, FS = fat-suppressed, fSPGR = fast spoiled gradient recalled echo, LAVA = liver acquisition with volume acceleration, SSFSE = single shot fast spin echo, T2w = T2-weighted
