Experienced operators performed all CAP and LiSA examinations according to the manufacturer’s instructions. During the examinations, all patients were in the dorsal decubitus position, with their right arm extended and lifted. Imaging was used to assess the right lobe of the liver through the intercostal approach with a calm breath hold of 6–7 seconds. Detection with successful measurements in fewer than 8 in 10 attempts was deemed a failure. The success rate was calculated as successful examinations versus total examinations. The final LiSA or CAP value was the median of individual measurements, and the interquartile range (IQR) <40 dB/m was used as a quality criterion.
