The Fibroscan or Elastography


Cutting-edge technology

We continuously improve our technology, as we are clear that technology and research means new opportunities for our patients.

Transitional Elastography or FibroScan is a novel non-invasive diagnostic technology that improves the diagnosis and monitoring of liver fibrosis without the need for a biopsy.

It uses low-frequency vibration and ultrasound to measure liver elasticity, which is inversely related to the degree of liver fibrosis.

It is more accurate than a liver biopsy because it studies a volume of liver tissue 100 times larger.

However, they are complementary techniques, as the biopsy provides additional information on inflammatory activity and other histological data of importance in the diagnosis.
