Study

Non-alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease Prevalence and Associated Mortality (NAFLD PAM)

This study will investigate the incremental yield of using radiology imaging report information to diagnose non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) compared to International Classification of Disease, Ninth/Tenth Revision, Clinical Modification diagnoses alone in adult Kaiser Permanente Northern California members between 2009-2018, and whether the use of the Dallas Steatosis Index identifies additional individuals at high risk for NAFLD. The study will also and look at whether patients with NAFLD are at increased risk for all-cause mortality compared to the general population.
