Những kỹ thuật không xâm lấn hỗ trợ cho access fibrosis/cirrhosis, tuy nhiên, liver biopsy vẫn là tiêu chuẩn vàng

-MR spectroscopy http://radiographics.rsna.org/content/29/6/1653.long
-FibroTest (đánh giá dựa trên GGT, haptoglobin, bilirubin, apolipoprotein A và a2-macroglobulin) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20828377
-Transient elastography http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/516246_3
-Aspartate aminotransferase to platelet ratio index (APRI) (=AST (U/L)x 100/ Số lượng tiểu cầu (/L)) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21286339
Of these, FibroTest has been the most extensively studied and validated, whereas transient elastography appears as a promising emerging tool. The combination of both of these approaches as first-line assessment of liver fibrosis may allow liver biopsy to be avoided in the majority of patients with chronic hepatitis
