What is being tested?
The study is looking at how muscle composition, measured by a special score from MRI images called MAsS, might predict complications or outcomes in people waiting for liver transplants.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this study uses MRIs to assess muscle composition and doesn't involve medication or invasive procedures, there aren't direct side effects related to the intervention.
