Fibroscan in Ahmedabad

Fibroscan Test in Ahmedabad

A FibroScan is a test that measures the amount of fibrosis (thickening or scarring of tissues) in your liver.
It can be used alone or with other tests (such as biopsy, blood tests, ultrasounds) to see how much scarring there is on your liver.

Fibroscan may help in

  • Autoimmune Hepatitis
  • Cirrhosis
  • Genetic Diseases (such as Hemochromatosis and Wilson’s Disease)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • Alcoholic Liver Disease
  • Non-Alcoholic Steatohepatitis (NASH)

Why Fibroscan Used ?

Fibroscan is a non-invasive diagnostic tool that is used to assess the health of the liver. It uses a special type of ultrasound technology known as transient elastography to measure the stiffness of the liver. The primary purpose of a Fibroscan is to diagnose liver fibrosis, which is a condition where the liver tissue becomes damaged and scarred, leading to liver dysfunction.

The liver fibrosis can be caused by a variety of factors, including hepatitis B and C, alcohol abuse, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Fibroscan is used to detect the extent of liver damage caused by these conditions.

The procedure is painless and non-invasive, making it a popular alternative to more invasive diagnostic procedures such as liver biopsy. The results of the Fibroscan can help doctors determine the best course of treatment for their patients, which may include medication or lifestyle changes to improve liver function.

Fibroscan is used to diagnose liver fibrosis caused by various factors and help doctors determine the best course of treatment.

Benefits of Fibroscan

Fibroscan is a non-invasive medical procedure that uses ultrasound waves to evaluate the stiffness of liver tissue, which can help diagnose liver diseases. Some benefits of Fibroscan include :

  1. Non-invasive : Fibroscan is a non-invasive procedure, which means it does not involve any incisions or needles. This makes it a safer and more comfortable alternative to invasive liver tests such as liver biopsy.
  2. Accurate : Fibroscan provides accurate results that can help diagnose liver diseases such as cirrhosis and fatty liver disease. It can also help monitor the progression of liver disease over time.
  3. Quick : The procedure is quick and typically takes less than 15 minutes to complete. This makes it a convenient option for patients who may not have a lot of time to spend at the hospital or clinic.
  4. Cost-effective : Fibroscan is a cost-effective procedure compared to other invasive liver tests. It is also covered by many insurance plans, making it an affordable option for patients.
  5. Minimally uncomfortable : The procedure is minimally uncomfortable and generally well-tolerated by patients. It does not require any sedation, and most patients report only a mild pressure sensation during the test.
