Abstract :

Until now liver biopsy is still gold standard to asses liver fibrosis. Fibroscan within superiority and little limitation can be an alternative as non-invasive procedure to asses liver fibrosis. In this pioneer study among “various chronic liver disease patients at Dr Soetomo hospital resulted higher Fibroscan score of liver stiffness, whereas the highest score of liver stiffness revealed among respectively hepatoma, liver cirrhosis, chronic hepatitis C, chronic hepatitis B, and NAFLD. For future, It is important to enrollment similar study that involved bigger sample size to determine liver fibrosis among any various liver diseases and conjuncted to detect its clinical complication earlier.
