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 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.
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 :
