Core Tip Chronic hepatitis B (CHB) is a major health problem in a lot of countries all over the world, parti-cularly in China. An accurate staging of liver fibrosis is critical for prognosticating this disease. However, although it is still the golden standard, liver biopsy is hindered by its inherent drawbacks in clinical appli-cations. In this study, we demonstrated that non-invasive methods, including acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI), aspartate aminotransferase to platelet ratio index (APRI) and Forns index showed significant correlations with the histological staging results from liver biopsy. The combined measurement of ARFI and APRI had the best diagnostic accuracy, which provided an ideal and convenient non-invasive diagnostic method for the detection of hepatic fibrosis of CHB patients in clinical practice.
