Understanding Your FibroScan Test Results

Fatty Liver/Steatosis

Lifestyle factors can influence the progression of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Inactivity and obesity are two of the biggest contributors to liver disease that is not due to heavy alcohol use.

The CAP score is measured in decibels per meter (dB/m) and ranges from 100-400.

  • A CAP score that falls anywhere between 238 to 260 dB/m represents 11-33% fatty change in the liver.
  • A CAP score that falls anywhere between 260 to 290 dB/m represents 34-66% fatty change in the liver.
  • A CAP score that is 290 dB/m or higher represents over 67% fatty change in the liver.

A healthy liver has a CAP score of 5% or lower.

A mild fatty liver is over 5% but less than 33%.

Over 34% but less than 66% is moderate, while over 66% is severe. Higher fat content is a risk factor for disease progression.

The two biggest risk factors for liver scarring are alcohol abuse and diseases like hepatitis. The fibrosis score measures the stiffness of the liver, which is indicative of scarring.

  • A fibrosis score of F0 to F1 ( 2 to 7 kPa) means there is little or no scarring on the liver.
  • A fibrosis score of F2 (7.5 to 10 kPa) indicates moderate scarring that has spread outside the liver.
  • A fibrosis score of F3 (10 to 14 kPa) indicates severe scarring which has spread and disrupts normal blood flow.
  • A fibrosis score of F4 ( 14 kPa or higher) means late-stage scarring or cirrhosis, where the scarring is permanent and the damage is irreversible.

Fibrosis scores allow doctors to plan treatment. Liver scarring is a serious condition and can lead to life-threatening complications if not addressed.


Median stiffness denotes how healthy is your liver. Liver stiffness normal range is 2-7 kpa. So your liver stiffness is mildly increased. Yes the increased is due to fatty liver, that means there is accumulation of fat in your liver. The risk factors for this is obesity, sedantery life style, diabetes, alcohol consumption, inappropriate diet.

There are few measures you can take to reduce your fatty liver.

1. Regular exercise.

2. Check your blood sugar levels, and if your diabetic get treated for it.

3. Meet a dietician and follow a balanced appropriate diet.

4. Cut down on alcohol( if you consume).
