Newer methods for detection and staging of liver fibrosis are rapidly under development. Some methods have substantial supporting evidence and are being used clinically, while others are on the horizon and undergoing research validation. These techniques are important for radiologists to understand and can be offered to clinicians to avoid the risks of invasive biopsies.
This AJR Live Webinar will help participants understand the most promising methods for noninvasive assessment of liver fibrosis.
After attending this session, participants will be able to:
- Describe quantitative methods to noninvasively detect and stage liver fibrosis using CT, MRI, and ultrasound
- Describe the accuracy, precision, technical aspects, advantages, and disadvantages of the most promising imaging methods for staging liver fibrosis
- Discuss recommendations for performing the CT liver surface nodularity score, ultrasound elastography, and magnetic resonance elastography
