Objective: The rate of steatosis is the parameter that should be assessed in steatohepatitis and donor liver biopsies before transplantation. The percentage of steatosis, evaluated as quantitative / semiquantitative, differs between observers and intra-observers. Various image analysis methods have been developed in order to reduce this difference. In our study, pathologists examined virtually created digitized images mimicking liver fat. The results' accuracy rates and differences in assessment, that would impact clinical management, were investigated.
