SWE Liver Stiffness as a Predictor of Progression of Chronic Liver Diseases (SWE Predict)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
This study is a multicenter individual patient-based meta-analysis that will assess the performances of liver stiffness measurements performed with supersonic shear imaging shearwave elastography (SSI-SWE) in patients with liver fibrosis to predict progression of chronic liver disease.
