Core Tip In order to overcome the well-known drawbacks of liver biopsy, different non-invasive imaging tests have been developed for diagnosing and staging liver fibrosis. At present, transient elastography and acoustic radiation force impulse imaging are the most widely used. Reviewing literature, it seems that acoustic radiation force impulse imaging, having the advantage of being included in ultrasound equipments, could provide higher reproducibility and successful measurements rate, with a more precise examination than transient elastography. Magnetic resonance-based methods, especially hepatospecific contrast medium uptake/excretion measurements and elastography, are promising but still not universally available tools.
