Prof.Dr. Yusuf Yılmaz of Medicine Faculty Gained  Great Success

Prof. Dr. Yusuf Yılmaz achieved significant success in the field of medicine by taking part in the research titled “Diagnostic accuracy of non-invasive tests for advanced fibrosis in patients with NAFLD: an individual patient data meta-analysis”, published in “Gut” Journal (2020 impact factor: 19.8).

This research on the diagnostic performance of non-invasive tests used to measure the presence of advanced liver fibrosis in patients with NAFLD is very important in terms of preventing unnecessary biopsy in many patients.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is the most common liver disease in the world, and the prevalence of fatty liver disease in our country is estimated to be around 30%. NAFLD is also a disease that should be taken seriously as it is a disease that can cause cirrhosis.
