Core Tip Several studies have demonstrated the accuracy of non-invasive methods to predict significant/advanced fibrosis and cirrhosis and to identify the presence/absence of fibrosis. However, it is still unknown if either non-invasive markers of liver fibrosis or elastography may contribute to a more accurate staging of liver cirrhosis, in terms of prognosis and fibrosis regression after effective therapy. Therefore, future studies are needed to validate non-invasive methods in predicting the different phases of liver cirrhosis.
