Özet

Purpose Although liver biopsy remains the gold standard in the staging of liver fibrosis in chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection, several noninvasive methods are under evaluation for clinical use. The aim of this study was to evaluate the utility of hepatobiliary function through technetium-99m-N-(-3-bromo-2,4,6-trimethylacetanilide) iminodiacetic acid (Tc-99m-mebrofenin) scintigraphy in evaluating liver fibrosis in patients with chronic HCV infection.
