This is a quick test that provides a non-surgical alternative to a traditional liver biopsy which is helpful in assessing liver damage. Fibroscan is a great, non-invasive alternative to liver biopsy. This procedure does not involve any needles or other uncomfortable tools. FibroScan measures the stiffness of the liver to help determine the degree of scarring. The liver is a complicated part of the body. Fibroscan is used in addition to other medical exams such as ultrasound or MRI.

Q.

How is the FibroScan test performed?

A.

FFibroScan is a non-invasive test that is performed at the point of care. There is no pain and no sedation is required. FibroScan is a useful test for every patient who wishes to diagnose the stage liver fibrosis. FibroScan has been used not only to measure liver fibrosis but also to evaluate patients with portal hypertension. This test helps to assess the recurrence of disease following liver transplantation and to predict survival in patients with liver disease. This technology is being used to evaluate patients with breast cancer, prostate cancer, and other diseases in which fibrosis plays an important role. The procedure of FibroScan takes place very calmly.

The liver is located in the right upper abdomen under the rib cage. The technician may ask the patient to lie flat on the examination table. The technician places the FibroScan probe between the ribs on the right side of the lower chest wall. The patient may feel a gentle flick each time a vibration wave is generated by the probe. These are a series of painless pulses that are applied to the liver.

The result is recorded on the equipment and overall liver stiffness score is generated. This is then interpreted by a liver specialist to predict the likelihood of advanced fibrosis or cirrhosis. FibroScan is an outpatient procedure with no downtime associated with it. This means that the patient can return to the normal routine as soon as the test is done. No restriction is imposed on the patient post-procedure.

Q.

How do you prepare for the procedure?

A.

Our team of HealthFinder connects with the patient before the treatment and provides them with effective instructions that help them in delivering efficient results. The patient must inform the staff and doctor about the medicines one is consuming. The patient must wear loose clothing and must lie flat on the exam bed for 10 minutes while the whole procedure takes place. Patients are asked not to consume any liquids or solids for a minimum of 3 hours before the test. The patient must refrain from eating for at least 2 hours before the test.

This increases the likelihood of obtaining reliable test results. FibroScan typically takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete but patients must plan on being in the diagnostic centre for about 30 minutes to allow for preparation. FibroScan in Chandigarh is performed by a highly qualified and trained professional which do a deep analysis of the liver. The patient must plan to arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled time. This test requires no sedation of any kind.



Q.

What is the risk associated with FibroScan?

A.

  • The patient who has fluid in the abdomen
  • Acute hepatitis
  • Heart failure
  • Severe obesity
  • Small rib spaces
  • Patients who are not able to lie flat
Q.

What patients must keep in mind while undergoing FibroScan?

A.

There are some factors which can interfere with the results:
  • Liver inflammation is caused by recent illness or due to alcohol consumption./li>
  • Benign or cancerous tumors in the liver./li>
  • Liver bloating related to a heart condition.
Q.

Who interprets the results?

A.

Our healthcare provider will talk about the results to the patient. We offer a free consultation at huge discounts and reliable services. Our team explains the FibroScan results in more detail including how the healthcare service provider uses the results to determine the steatosis grade and fibrosis score. FibroScan results are provided instantly after the test. Most imaging centers use 5 point scoring system to grade the degree of liver fibrosis.

A fibrosis result is measured in KiloPascal’s ranging from 2 to 75 KPa. Between 2 and 6KPa is considered a normal liver. The average normal result range is 5.3KPa. Beyond this is typically indicates liver disease. Between 90–95% of healthy people without the liver disease have a liver scarring measurement <7.0 kPa. The interpretation of readings may vary depending on the liver disease aetiology. Interpretation of results is best performed in conjunction with other clinical methods. This is ideally done by someone who is experienced in managing chronic liver disease.
