Abstract

The area of fibrosis, as determined by image analysis, and the semi-quantitative score are well correlated. However, for serum markers the correlation is higher with the area of fibrosis than with the semi-quantitative score. Other characteristics such as reproducibility, rapidity, simplicity, adaptability, and exhaustiveness also favor image analysis.
