Fibroscan

The Consistent, Painless Approach to Liver Management

 

Digestive Disease Associates now offers FibroScan®, an accurate, non-invasive, painless aid for managing patients with liver disease. FibroScan is FDA-approved for clinical management of patients with liver disease and is covered by most insurance carriers.

FibroScan works by emitting a pulse of energy, which you may feel as a slight vibration on your skin. FibroScan then measures the speed of this energy and immediately provides this information to your physician, who then uses it as part of a broader evaluation of your liver health.

 

FibroScan offers many benefits:

  • Consistent results
  • The examined area is 100x the size of a needle biopsy
  • Covered by most insurance plans
  • The procedure is painless and takes about 10 minutes
