  1. The demographic data of the studied patients which shows that 66.7% of patients (20 patients) were males, 33.3% (10 patients) were females, the mean age was 57.07 years ± SD, and 22 patients (73.3%) were from rural areas (data not shown). Table 1 showed the baseline radiological assessment, liver stiffness, and noninvasive serological markers of the included patients
