Nowadays, the gold standard for the diagnosis of liver disease is histological examination.
However, due to the dangers and complications of liver biopsy, there is a worldwide
demand for the development of non-invasive procedures that can accurately determine
the degree of hepatic steatosis, furthermore is cost-effective, user-friendly, and
provides repeatable measurement. Based on the metrological experience of our research
team, we started developing an electrical impedance-based diagnostic method a few
years ago that meets these requirements and is suitable for early detection of nonalcoholic
fatty liver disease (NAFLD) with the help of a world-new measurement and data collection
solution. In addition to the preliminar results of the long-term clinical validation
of the diagnostic method developed to detect NAFLD, the authors present early partial
results. Even with the small amount of data, very impressive results have been obtained.
