AASLD/EASL Symposium: Non-invasive Assessment of Liver Disease
Recorded On: 10/23/2017
The Symposium will provide a broad overview on the diversity of noninvasive diagnostic approaches for assessing chronic liver disease in the U.S. and Europe. Experts will discuss the role and interpretation of noninvasive diagnostic test strategies in assessing the severity of disease associated with NAFLD, cirrhosis, and portal hypertension. These lectures — in conjunction with a panel discussion — will benefit all healthcare professionals using these novel tools in their clinical practice.
