Liver FirbroScan Exam Process



What To Expect With The Liver FibroScan Examination

• The FibroScan examination process is fast, safe, painless and non-invasive. It takes 5-10 minutes. The key to FibroScan's accuracy lies in the fact that it takes the average of 10 separate measurements, whereas a biopsy takes only one measurement.

• No eating within three hours of the FibroScan test.

• Wear a blouse or shirt that can be partially unbuttoned to expose your right side above the waist and below the breast bone.

• You lie on your back with your right arm raised behind your head.

• The physician applies a water-based gel to the skin and places the probe onto the upper right side of your abdomen.

• At the end of the examination, the result will be sent to your doctor, which your doctor will evaluate and interpret the result according to your history and your disease.
