What is normal kPa in FibroScan?

FibroScan® results range from 2.5 kPa to 75 kPa. Between 90–95% of healthy people without liver disease will have a liver scarring measurement <7.0 kPa (median is 5.3 kPa).

What is a good liver fibrosis score?

A healthy liver has a CAP score of 5% or lower. A mild fatty liver is over 5% but less than 33%. Over 34% but less than 66% is moderate, while over 66% is severe.

What is a high fibrosis score?

A fibrosis stage of 2 or higher means there’s a lot of fibrosis in your liver. If your fibrosis stage is 3 or 4, your fibrosis is advanced. You have cirrhosis if your fibrosis stage is 4. Your doctor can also use results from your FibroScan test alone or combined with other tests to figure out your fibrosis score.

What is stiffness kPa?

Stiffness (E) is expressed in kilopascals (kPa) and represents the resistance of material to deformation.

What is normal range of liver stiffness?

The study identified a healthy liver stiffness range of 2.3 to 5.9 kPa in the Chinese population. A recent study on 437 South Asian subjects showed a reference range to be 3.2 and 8.5 kPa by calculating the 5th and 95th percentile respectively [17]. A higher LSM was identified in lean and obese subjects.

What does fibrosis score of F4 mean?

Fibrosis score F0 to F1: No liver scarring or mild liver scarring. Fibrosis score F2: Moderate liver scarring. Fibrosis score F3: Severe liver scarring. Fibrosis score F4: Advanced liver scarring (cirrhosis)

What is normal cap score?

The CAP score is measured in decibels per meter (dB/m). It ranges from 100 to 400 dB/m.

What is a normal Nafld score?

NAFLD fibrosis score. Interpretation. Less than -1.455. Low probability of fibrosis. From -1.455 to 0.676.

What is kPa in liver stiffness?

FibroScan measures scarring by measuring the stiffness of your liver. The fibrosis result is measured in kilopascals (kPa) It’s normally between 2 and 6 kPa. The highest possible result is 75 kPa. Many people with liver disease(s) have a result that’s higher than the normal range.

How accurate are Fibroscans?

The total accuracy of the Fibroscan was found to be 66% (21 “good” correlation, 11 “poor” correlation). The accuracy of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) was 91% compared to 52% for non-NASH liver diseases.
