Liver stiffness measurement (LSM) by FibroScan‐determined transient elastography is a noninvasive approach to estimate liver fibrosis severity. In non‐alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), advanced liver fibrosis is excluded by normal liver stiffness, but a wide range of cutoffs have been used to predict advanced liver fibrosis or cirrhosis. This may be partly because steatosis (measured by controlled attenuation parameter [CAP]) contributes to liver stiffness and also because LSM fluctuates...[Show more]
