The purpose

HYPOTHESIS: The investigators hypothesize that sonoelastography (SE) will provide accurate quantitative measurements that can be used to stage liver fibrosis in patients with chronic liver disease. 1. To measure liver stiffness with sonoelastography in adults with suspect diffuse liver disease who will undergo non-focal liver biopsy as part of their routine clinical care 2. To assess the sensitivity and specificity of sonoelastography for the detection and staging of liver fibrosis 3. To evaluate the effect of steatosis and inflammation on the estimation of liver fibrosis using sonoelastography
