Liver function tests (LFT) are a helpful screening tool, which are an effective modality to detect hepatic dysfunction. Since the liver performs a variety of functions so no single test is sufficient to provide complete estimate of function of liver. Often clinicians are faced with reports that do not tally with the clinical condition of the patient and they face difficulty in interpreting the LFT. An attempt is being made to study and understand the LFT and simplify their interpretation with algorithms.
