FibroScan® is a noninvasive diagnostic ultrasound-based device used to measure liver scarring, or fibrosis, caused by different liver diseases. Similar to a conventional ultrasound exam, outpatient FibroScan® testing is quick, painless and easy, and provides a non-surgical alternative to the traditional liver biopsy to assess liver damage.

 

Physicians may recommend a FibroScan® test if you have one of the following chronic liver conditions:

  • Hepatitis B

  • Hepatitis C

  • Alcoholic liver disease

  • Non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH)

  • Autoimmune hepatitis

  • Genetic diseases such as hemochromatosis and Wilson’s disease

  • Cirrhosis
