Mantzoros, MD, PhD, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, chief of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism at the Boston VA Healthcare System and director of human nutrition at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, discusses a new artificial intelligence and machine learning tool for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease prediction.
