About FibroScan:

FibroScan is the noninvasive gold standard for comprehensive management of liver disease. It sends a pulse of energy to your liver, which will give your medical practitioner important information about your liver’s health. FibroScan is a specialized ultrasound machine for your liver that measures fibrosis (scarring) and steatosis (fatty change) in your liver.
