FibroScan

A Non-Invasive Liver Biopsy Option

FibroScan uses a technology called vibration-controlled transient elastography. It works much like an ultrasound in that it uses sound waves to measure the degree of scarring (fibrosis) that's present in the liver.

A FibroScan examination typically takes 10 minutes or less, during which you:

  • Lie on your back with your right arm raised above your head
  • Have gel applied to your skin by a clinician
  • Have the FibroScan probe placed on your right side over the liver
  • Get your degree of liver fibrosis measured

The interpreted test results are provided to your provider. The test can be repeated to monitor your management. For additional information or to schedule an appointment call (515) 241-4176
