My AST/ALT score is F1 and my APRI score is F4?
Noticed in one article: PWE-121 Comparison Of Kings Score, Apri and AST/ALT Ratio in Determining Severity of Liver Disease Versus Liver Biopsy in Gut 2013;62
"Conclusion Conclusions The AST/ALT ratio had the greatest diagnostic accuracy in determining significant fibrosis or cirrhosis. The Kings score performed better than APRI. AST/ALT is a simple guide to determine significant fibrosis and cirrhosis in liver disease."
While I appreciate that any F score above 0 means some scaring, why the difference?
