    4 Recommendations for further research

    Further evidence is needed to address uncertainty about the relative performance of the FibroScan test when done in primary or community care

    4.1 Performance of FibroScan is dependent on the experience of the user (see section 3.3), therefore test performance in primary or community care may depend on who is doing the test and how often they do it (see section 3.4). Clarification on who would do the test in these settings and their likely experience is needed. Further evidence is needed to support considerations about the impact of experience and training on test performance. This could be the extent of use needed to obtain and maintain experience in using the test, how experience in using the test impacts on performance, and potentially impact of the extent of training on test performance.
