Liver enzyme abnormalities typically present in either of two patterns: hepatocellular injury or cholestasis. Doc-tors also use them to monitor a person’s liver disease and to check if treatment is working. Chronic hepatitis C. (A) Ultrasound demonstrating hepatic surface nodularity and a coarsened echotexture, consistent with patient's biopsy‐proven cirrhosis. All laboratories usually employ a battery of tests for initial detection and management of liver diseases and these tests are frequently termed “Liver function tests”, Some doctors perform these tests as part of a regular checkup.
