Controlled attenuation parameter for the detection of hepatic steatosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B.

BACKGROUND Controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) is a non-invasive method for diagnosing liver steatosis based on vibration-controlled transient elastography. The primary objective of this study was to assess CAP performance and determine the cut-off values for the diagnosis of hepatic steatosis in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) using liver biopsy… (More)
