Smart Imaging for Metabolic Associated Fatty Liver Disease
Date: 30 June 2020
Time: 3 PM PST | 5 PM CST | 11 PM BST
Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is defined as the presence of abnormally high fat in the liver, after the exclusion of secondary etiologies such as significant alcohol consumption, among others. Because of this rather loose definition, many experts have recently suggested that Metabolic (dysfunction) Associated Fatty Liver Disease “MAFLD” is a more appropriate term.
With increasing obesity and diabetes, MAFLD is becoming a growing problem worldwide, affecting an estimated 70 million American adults.
As a silent disease it is often detected because of abnormal results for unrelated issues or annual screenings. Currently, treatments for MAFLD include mostly lifestyle modification interventions, such as weight loss and exercise. Drugs are expected to come to market this year.
In this webinar we will discuss how smart imaging techniques, such as LiverMultiScan® are improving the clinical pathway for patients with MAFLD, and how to integrate this into your practice.
- Understanding the links between obesity, diabetes and fatty liver disease.
- How LiverMultiScan empowers physicians to best care for patients with MAFLD.
- How patients with MAFLD are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19
- How this smart imaging technology compares to other non-invasive liver tests as an aid to diagnose, monitor and predict liver disease outcomes
- Integrating smart imaging into your practice.
