One-time liver stiffness measurement can predict decompensation in PSC

A a single liver stiffness measurement and changes in liver stiffness over time correlated with hepatic decompensation in patients with primary sclerosing cholangitis, researchers found. However, changes in liver stiffness occurred slowly in those without advanced fibrosis or decompensation.“As previously described, [magnetic resonance elastography (MRE)] has several advantages over [transient elastography] among those with PSC,” John E. Eaton, MD, from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and colleagues wrote. “Several of these advantages include an ability to sample aRead More
