  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To determine the diagnostic accuracy of transient elastography for detecting hepatic fibrosis in people with alcoholic liver disease when compared with liver biopsy as reference standard. In particular, no significant hepatic fibrosis (F0, F1) and significant hepatic fibrosis (F2, F3, F4), no cirrhosis (F0, F1, F2, F3) and cirrhosis (F4).
