S4-14.2 - NICE and FibroScan for Primary Care: Utilizing Early Detection to Prevent Cirrhosis
Co-hosts Jörn Schattenberg, Louise Campbell and Roger Green convene to discuss what’s happening for fatty liver so far in 2023 and moving into the second quarter. In this conversation, the group discuss NICE and FibroScan in the primary care setting, frontline screening to enable early detection and prevent cirrhosis, the upcoming EASL Congress and more.

This week on Surfing the NASH Tsunami, we are offering a co-host ‘roundtable’ catch-up between Jörn Schattenberg, Louise Campbell and Roger Green. This is a fun, casual conversation that looks into first quarter highlights and a preview of what’s to come in quarter two of 2023.

In this conversation, each Surfer picks one thing that’s anticipated to happen in the second quarter that they think is likely to be most momentous or compelling. Louise leads with comments around the rigorous approval process of NICE for primary care access to FibroScan in the UK. While extensive, these protocols produce world-leading cost-benefit analysis. The group goes on to discuss how different systems contribute to progress in the field through different qualities. Louise asserts that facilitating frontline screening will enable early detection and ultimately help prevent cirrhosis for many patients. As the conversation winds down, Jörn offers notes on the upcoming EASL Congress and Roger shares his latest metaphor to describe the dynamism of fighting fatty liver disease.
