The use of Artificial Intelligence for diagnosing Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease/Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis through Histopathology

This article discusses the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the pathological diagnosis of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)/nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). NAFLD/NASH is on the rise globally and while non-invasive diagnosis has increased, pathological evaluation remains the gold standard. However, subjective judgment of pathologists can lead to inter-observer variations. AI can assist in diagnosis with high objectivity and accuracy, and several studies have reported its usefulness in NAFLD/NASH diagnosis. The use of AI in human clinical trials is expected in the near future and has the potential to overcome the lack of objectivity and poor inter-observer agreement in pathological diagnosis.
