Liver function tests, also referred to as a hepatic panel, are groups of blood tests that provide information about the state of a patient's liver. These tests include prothrombin time, activated Partial Thromboplastin Time, albumin, bilirubin, and others. The liver transaminases aspartate transaminase and alanine transaminase are useful biomarkers of liver injury in a patient with some degree of intact liver function. Most liver diseases cause only mild symptoms initially, but ...

Technically liver function tests are albumin, INR, bilirubin, glucose and factors save VIII. Liver enzymes are AST, ALT, ALP, GGT and 5'NTD. Is this the common understanding, and should the article be factored as such?
Reasonably specific to the liver, it doesn't really say that much about the nature of the liver damage. Though it is raised significantly by alcohol poisoning. Coagulation tests (e.g. INR) The liver is responsible for the production of coagulation factors. The INR measures the speed of a particular pathway of coagulation, comparing it to normal
Some tests are associated with functionality (e.g., albumin), some with cellular integrity (e.g., transaminase), and some with conditions linked to the biliary tract (gamma-glutamyl transferase and alkaline phosphatase). Because some of these tests do not measure function, it is more accurate to call these liver chemistries or liver tests ...
