Objective: The objective of the study was to check the sensitivity of detecting early liver fibrosis
by ultrasound elastography in patients who have normal liver architecture on conventional ultrasound but persistent deranged liver function tests.
Despite the efficient drugs with high rates of viral cure (SVR) in HCV chronically infected patients (CHC), and suppression in HBV chronic carriers (CHB) that lead to the improvement of long-term prognosis of patients, the non-invasive evaluation of fibrosis

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) includes a range of liver disorders from simple fatty liver to inflammation, fibrosis
