Guidelines by the the British Society of Gastroenterology, the European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL) and the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) recommend the use of abdominal ultrasonography, diagnostic paracentesis, and ascitic fluid cultures in the workup of patients with suspected hepatorenal syndrome (HRS).
