Many healthcare professionals view liver function tests as one of the most difficult sets of laboratory tests to interpret. A complex organ, the liver manufactures, stores, alters and excretes many substances involved in metabolism. The entire body is affected by disease or malfunction of the liver. Healthcare professionals must be informed about these tests, the implications for patients’ health, and the considerations for care.


The goal of this liver panel continuing education program is to inform laboratory personnel about liver panel interpretation and related conditions. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the components and clinical interpretation of the liver panel
  • Identify pathophysiology and treatment considerations surrounding each component of the liver panel
  • Describe conditions associated with high and low values of specific liver panel components
Level of Instruction: Intermediate
