Figure 3 Relationship between acoustic radiation force impulse predicting values and histological fibrosis stages. The relationship was significant between the velocity of the sheer wave (median of 10 ARFI values) and the fibrosis stage (assessed by the METAVIR score on biopsies) in all 82 patients (P < 0.0001). The box represents the interquartile range, the horizontal line in the box indicates the median value and the diamond indicates the mean value. The horizontal lines above and below the box indicate the maximum and minimum values.
