Several non-invasive scoring systems have been developed to determine risk of advanced fibrosis in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). We examined the association between 4 scoring systems and incident severe liver disease and overall mortality in a large cohort of patients with biopsy-proven NAFLD.

Fibrosis affects prognoses for patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Several non-invasive scoring systems have aimed to identify patients at risk for advanced fibrosis, but inconclus...
Accurate and reproducible MRI assessment of the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is challenging. Numerous scoring systems have been proposed to facilitate consistent SIJ assessment. The purpose of this article ...
In an attempt to further improve liver allograft utilization and outcome in orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT), a variety of clinical scoring systems have been developed. Here we aimed to comparat...
Inexpensive blood tests have been well established as alternatives to liver biopsies to evaluate liver fibrosis in CHB patients. Here, we aim to compare their diagnostic accuracy in assessing liver fi...
Early identification of children with cystic fibrosis (CF) at risk for severe liver disease (CFLD) would enable targeted study of preventative therapies. There is no gold standard test for CFLD. Ultra...
Several risk assessment scoring systems have been proposed to assess the therapeutic response and predict long term prognosis in ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA)-treated primary biliary cholang...
Identification of patients who are at highest risk for heart attack is an important task for emergency medicine physicians. Currently, physicians use a variety of different scoring systems...
The aim of this study is to overcome the current limits of the scoring systems used to predict both the thrombotic (VTE) and hemorrhagic (BLD) risk for the patient. The main problem of the...
The objective of the present study was to compare the ability of acute physiology and chronic health evaluation (APACHE) scoring systems with the combination of an anthropometric variable ...
Seven different scoring systems used for prediction of perioperative bleeding were compared regarding patients operated for elective open cardiac surgery in the investigator's study.
Classification system for assessing impact injury severity developed and published by the American Association for Automotive Medicine. It is the system of choice for coding single injuries and is the foundation for methods assessing multiple injuries or for assessing cumulative effects of more than one injury. These include Maximum AIS (MAIS), Injury Severity Score (ISS), and Probability of Death Score (PODS).
Systems for assessing, classifying, and coding injuries. These systems are used in medical records, surveillance systems, and state and national registries to aid in the collection and reporting of trauma.
A pyrazolone with analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties but has risk of AGRANULOCYTOSIS. A breath test with 13C-labeled aminopyrine has been used as a non-invasive measure of CYTOCHROME P-450 metabolic activity in LIVER FUNCTION TESTS.
Conditions in which the LIVER functions fall below the normal ranges. Severe hepatic insufficiency may cause LIVER FAILURE or DEATH. Treatment may include LIVER TRANSPLANTATION.
The process of minimizing risk to an organization by developing systems to identify and analyze potential hazards to prevent accidents, injuries, and other adverse occurrences, and by attempting to handle events and incidents which do occur in such a manner that their effect and cost are minimized. Effective risk management has its greatest benefits in application to insurance in order to avert or minimize financial liability. (From Slee & Slee: Health care terms, 2d ed)
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
