Reasons for Liver Firbroscan



Why do you need a FibroScan examination of your liver?

Prevention is key. To prevent irreversible liver damage, it is important to monitor your liver fibrosis staging.You need a FibroScan examination every six months if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Hepatitis C or Hepatitis B
  • Alcohol related liver disease
  • Obesity related liver disease know as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD or NASH)
  • Other types of chronic liver disease such as autoimmune hepatitis
  • The FibroScan examination provides immediate results of your fibrosis staging. This allows your physician to diagnose and monitor the progression of the disease, and to provide appropriate treatment when necessary.
