Webinar Summary:

With a global rise in prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, the need for noninvasive tools (NITs) for the diagnosis of fibrosis and other liver injuries has been growing. That is why we have developed LIVERFASt™, a novel blood-based noninvasive tool for the diagnosis and staging of fibrosis, activity and steatosis.

In this webinar, Dr Stephen Harrison will present the prevalence of NAFLD, especially in at risk population, how LIVERFASt™ is different from other NITs and how it can help physicians in detecting and staging NAFLD, NASH and cirrhosis.

Webinar Agenda:

  • Introduction
  • What is LIVERFASt?
  • Independent validation study
  • Prognosis validation study
  • LIVERFASt™ vs. other NITs
  • Q&A
