The originally published article contained an error in figure 8 part a, in which cut off values for F3 fibrosis, cirrhosis, and screening for oesophageal varices and HCC were incorrectly presented as <8 kPa, <12.5 kPa and <20 kPa, respectively. These cut off values have been corrected in the HTML and PDF versions of the manuscript to >8 kPa for F3 fibrosis, >12.5 kPa for cirrhosis and >20 kPa for screening for oesophageal varices and HCC.
