Core Tip To date, endoscopy is regarded as “gold standard” for diagnosis of esophageal varices (EV) and predicting high bleeding risk EV (HREV) in cirrhotic patients. This study came into the conclusion that computed tomography imaging has higher accuracy in predicting EV and HREV than liver stiffness measurement and magnetic resonance imaging in cirrhotic patients. It is suggested that computed tomography imaging, a non-invasive diagnostic method, is the best choice for predicting EV and HREV in cirrhotic patients comparing with liver stiffness measurement and magnetic resonance imaging. However, in future, the head-to-head comparisons of these imaging tools in the same series of patients are required to confirm the predictive value, especially in using artificial intelligence technique.
