To determine and validate alanine aminotransferase (ALT)-adapted dual cut-offs of liver stiffness measurements (LSMs) for assessing liver fibrosis with two-dimensional shear wave elastography (2D-SWE) in patients with chronic hepatitis B (CHB) infection. Patients with CHB infection who underwent liver biopsy to assess liver fibrosis were consecutively… CONTINUE READING
