I’ve got a mystery for you.
A Fibroscan with a 21,6 score indicating fibrosis, an ARFI elastography indicating F0, in other words, no liver damage, two ultrasounds with level 1 steatosis and an MRI with a level 1 steatosis.
And a crazy doctor that says that no way in hell I’m F0. I should be at least F3 according to her.
It’s important to mention that my body fat is above 40 and I have a lot of abdominal fat.
So, I have three exams saying I’m fine and one saying that I’m not.
Which one should I trust? Is ARFI more reliable than Fibroscan I’m obese patients? Can an ultrasound detect cirrhosis reliably? What about an MRI? Can it detect cirrhosis?
As you can imagine, I’m going crazy.
