Thank you!
  Dr Chung Writes-  
It is one of several scoring systems to assess inflammation and scarring in the liver. the value adds up several inflammatory component scores and a scarring score. the most important score is the scarring or fibrosis score - your doctor should be able to provide you with this information.
