- Noninvasive Liver Biopsy
This test is intended for noninvasive assessment of liver status in patients with alcoholic liver disease. Quantitative results of 10 biochemicals in combination with age, gender, height, and weight are analyzed using a computational algorithm to provide a quantitative surrogate marker (0.0-1.0) of liver fibrosis (Metavir F0-F4), hepatic steatosis (0.0-1.0, S0-S3), and alcoholic steatohepatitis (ASH) (0.0-1.0, H0-H3).
