Elastography Assessment of Liver Fibrosis: Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound Consensus Conference Statement

Radiology. 2015 Sep;276(3):845-61. doi: 10.1148/radiol.2015150619. Epub 2015 Jun 16.


The Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound convened a panel of specialists from radiology, hepatology, pathology, and basic science and physics to arrive at a consensus regarding the use of elastography in the assessment of liver fibrosis in chronic liver disease. The panel met in Denver, Colo, on October 21-22, 2014, and drafted this consensus statement. The recommendations in this statement are based on analysis of current literature and common practice strategies and are thought to represent a reasonable approach to the noninvasive assessment of diffuse liver fibrosis.
