Summary

The objective of this study is: (1) to investigate the correlation of ultrasound parameters (SW speed, Dispersion slope, Attenuation value, Normalized Local Variance, Liver / Kidney Intensity Ratio) with the pathological parameters (fibrosis, intralobular inflammation, ballooning degeneration and steatosis); (2) to evaluate the diagnostic performance of SW speed for liver fibrosis, Dispersion slope for intralobular inflammation and Attenuation value for steatosis by comparison with the tissue diagnosis by liver biopsy.
