The global prevalence of NAFLD and NASH is constantly increasing, and in Japan it has tripled in the last two decades [Eguchi et al., 2020]. Although obese patients have higher prevalence, up to 30% of NAFLD/NASH patients in Japan were reported be non-obese, stressing the urgent need for early and efficient diagnostics and treatments.
This study, published in World Journal of Gastroenterology, demonstrates how, in a single non-invasive test, LiverMultiScan can safely, accurately, and cost-effectively identify which NAFLD patients have NASH as well as NASH with advanced fibrosis. High levels of inter-reader disagreement between biopsy results in this study further emphasize the need for diagnostic alternatives to biopsy and support the use of LiverMultiScan in day-to-day practice.
