What does the FAT (CAP) Score mean?
The FAT in the liver is measured by the Controlled Attenuation Parameter – CAP. This score will be used by your doctor to grade your steatosis (fatty change). If your FAT level should be in the green zone if is above this, it is recommended that you share the report with your doctor so they can assist you if required. The CAP score is measured in decibels per meter (dB/m) and It ranges from 100 to 400 dB/m.
