In this lecture, Professor Zach Murphy will present on Liver Function Tests (LFTs). We will discuss the components of LFTs, including tests for enzymes like AST and ALT, bilirubin levels, and protein synthesis markers such as albumin and prothrombin time, and what they reveal about liver health. The session will transition to a digital presentation focused on the interpretation of these tests, identifying patterns of liver injury, and distinguishing between hepatocellular damage, cholestasis, and liver synthetic dysfunction. Finally, we will review how LFTs guide the diagnostic process for liver diseases, from viral hepatitis to cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Enjoy the lecture and support us below!
