Core Tip Transient elastography is a non-invasive, easy, reproducible technique that is well tolerated for staging non-significant fibrosis or severe fibrosis/cirrhosis. The assessment of liver fibrosis using transient elastography may be useful to reduce the need for a liver biopsy. In this prospective study, liver stiffness values can also be used as a predictor of response to therapy. A liver stiffness value greater than 12 kPa is a negative predictor of response to both dual and triple therapy. Therefore, transient elastography could be used in clinical practice to improve the selection of patient treatment.
