Core Tip Elastography-based measurement of liver stiffness (LSM) and spleen stiffness (SSM) represent an important non-invasive screening tool for esophageal varices (EVs). Transient elastography (TE) is most widely validated, and the combined TE-based LSM < 20 kPa and platelet count (PLT) > 150 G/L algorithm has been adopted by newest guidelines as a tool to rule-out varices-needing-treatment (VNTs). While LSM and SSM by novel shear wave elastography devices and magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) may be more accurate to reflect the risk of EV and VNT, their value in clinical practice remains to be established.
