Transient elastography with controlled attenuation parameter (CAP) for diagnosis of moderate or severe steatosis in people with suspected non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

To determine the diagnostic accuracy of transient elastography with CAP for diagnosis of moderate and severe hepatic steatosis in people with suspected NAFLD when compared with liver biopsy as reference standard. To achieve this, we will compare none/mild hepatic steatosis (S0 to S1) versus moderate/severe hepatic steatosis (S2 to S3); and none/mild/moderate hepatic steatosis (S0 to S2) versus severe hepatic steatosis (S3).

This is a protocol.
