Keywords Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis; Steatosis; Fibrosis; Imaging; Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
Core Tip Current data suggest that ultrasound and the fibrosis-4 score are probably the most appealing methods for detecting steatosis and for distinguishing nonalcoholic steatohepatitis from simple steatosis, respectively, because of their low cost and relatively high accuracy. However, currently available methods, both serologic and imaging, cannot obviate the need for liver biopsy for diagnosing nonalcoholic steatohepatitis due to their substantial false positive and false negative rates. Therefore, the current role of these methods is probably limited in patients who are unwilling or have contraindications for undergoing biopsy.
