    BARD Score for NAFLD Fibrosis

    Predicts risk of advanced fibrosis in NAFLD patients.
    When to Use
    Pearls/Pitfalls
    Why Use

    Patients with suspected NAFLD.

    • Strong negative predictive value for ruling out fibrosis (Raszeja-Wyszomirska 2010).

    • Original study involved mostly Caucasian patients and therefore score may be less applicable in other populations.

    • Doesn’t predict fibrosis but rules out (high sensitivity).

    • Helps differentiate adult patients with NAFLD from NASH who have not yet developed clinical stigmata of cirrhosis.

    • Predicts advanced fibrosis in NAFLD patients with a NPV of 97% (rules out fibrosis), thus potentially avoiding need for liver biopsy.

    • Comparable to NAFLD Fibrosis Score in terms of sensitivity and specificity.
