MRE plus Fib-4 prove highly accurate in liver fibrosis detection

Researchers have found that coupling image-based and serum-based biomarkers achieves a higher diagnostic accuracy in detecting stage 2 liver fibrosis or above, than using the techniques separately. They reached their conclusions after using magnetic resonance elastography (MRE) in tandem with the serum-based Fib-4 clinical prediction rule. Report: Mark Nicholls A study team from the NAFLD Research Center, University of California at San Diego (UCSD), working with colleagues at Yokohama City University in Japan, set out to examine whether MRE alone, or in combination with Fib-4, may be used for non-invasive identification of candidates for pharmacologic therapy among well-characterised patie
