Prospective comparison of transient, point shear wave, and magnetic resonance elastography for staging liver fibrosis

A paper published by Dr. Tang’s team at the CRCHUM in collaboration with the MUHC recently assessed and compared the diagnostic performance of three elastographic techniques for staging liver fibrosis using biopsy as a standard reference. Transient elastography, point shear wave elastography, and magnetic resonance elastography are all available in clinics, and assessment of their performance may be critical for the diagnosis of patients with liver fibrosis caused by various chronic liver diseases, including nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH).
