23294 NASH FibroSURE (550140)

NASH FibroSURE (550140)
Test Code: NASHSO
Synonyms/Keywords

Fatty Liver Disease, NAFLD, Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease, Noninvasive Liver Biopsy, Steatohepatitis

Test Components
a2-macroglobulin, haptoglobin, apolipoprotein A1, bilirubin, y-glutamyl transpeptidase (GGT), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), total cholesterol, triglycerides, and fasting glucose​
Useful For
NASH FibroSure® is recommended for patients with suspected nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. It is not recommended for patient with other liver diseases. It is also not recommended in patients with Gilbert disease, acute hemolysis, acute hepatitis, acute inflammation of the liver, autoimmune hepatitis, extrahepatic cholestasis, transplant patients, and/or renal insufficiency patients. Any of these clinical situations may lead to inaccurate quantitative predictions of fibrosis.​

Test Information

This test is comprised of 10 individual tests. For Medicare patients, 3 of these have Medicare coverage policies (cholesterol, triglycerides, and glucose). When ordering this test, consider Medicare's lipid and glucose coverage policies when entering reasons (ICD-9's) for this service.

This test is a noninvasive assessment of liver status in patients with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Quantitative results of 10 biochemicals in combination with age, gender, height, and weight are analyzed using a computational algorithm to provide a quantitative surrogate marker (0.0-1.0) of liver fibrosis (Metavir F0-F4), hepatic steatosis (0.0-1.0, S0-S3), and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) (0.0-0.75, N0-N2). The absence of steatosis (S<0.38) precludes the diagnosis of NASH.​
