Digestive & Liver Disease Consultants, PA is proud to announce the incorporation of FibroScan technology to our practice.
FibroScan uses elastography, which is a technique similar to ultrasound, that measures the stiffness of your liver. It is a non-invasive, painless alternative to liver biopsy and is used by our team at Digestive & Liver Disease Consultants, PA for assessing liver damage from conditions such as Hepatitis C, Fatty Liver, and Cirrhosis.
The FibroScan procedure can be performed quickly and easily by one of our hepatologists or specialist nurses who will be able to use the results to assess your condition, together with the results of your blood tests and any other diagnostic procedures you may have. The FibroScan technology provides an accurate assessment of liver fibrosis while easily monitoring the progression or regression of an individual's liver disease to give a precise, quantitative measure of the success of treatments.
