Liver biopsy is most accu- rate in disorders causing diffuse changes throughout the liver and is subject to sampling error in focal disorders.

Contraindications to performing a percutaneous liver biopsy include significant ascites and prolonged INR. Under these circumstances, the biopsy can be per- formed via the transjugular approach.
