Core Tip This study was designed to evaluate liver fibrosis using non-invasive transient elastography (Fibroscan) in comparison with liver biopsy in children with biliary atresia (BA). According to the METAVIR scoring system, in groups F2, F3 and F4, the mean liver stiffness measurement (LSM) was 9.10 ± 3.30 kPa, 11.02 ± 3.31 kPa and 22.86 ± 12.43 kPa, respectively. The AUC of LSM for ≥ F4 was 0.886. The cut-off value of LSM was 15.15 kPa for ≥ F4, with high sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value and negative predictive value. In conclusion, Fibroscan can be effectively used as a non-invasive technique to assess liver fibrosis in children with BA.
