What is FibroScan?
FibroScan is a painless and reliable alternative to a liver biopsy. this non-invasive technique is used to measure liver scarring, or fibrosis, caused by a number of liver diseases. During the test, the technician presses a probe against the skin on the right side of the lower chest. You will feel a slight vibration on the skin when the probe is activated. This vibration measures the stiffness of the liver to assess liver disease.

What to Expect During a FibroScan:
1. Please do not eat or drink 3 hours before the exam
2. The entire FibroScan session takes about 15-20 minutes.
3. The test is painless. There is no needle and all you feel is a gentle vibration on your skin.

What Insurances Are Accepted?
Most insurances now cover a FibroScan examination, including Medicare & Medicaid. We also offer financial assistance options for those without insurance.
