Overview of

FibroScan

in Thailand

FibroScan is a newly specialized ultrasound based machine to help detact changes in your liver. It measures fibrosis (scarring) and steatosis (fatty change) in your liver. Fatty change is when fat builds up in your liver cells. A FibroScan will help your healthcare provider learn more about your liver disease. It can be used alone or with other tests (such as blood tests, imaging scans, or biopsies) that also measure scarring or fatty change in your liver.

Goals of

FibroScan

Fibroscan will help tell your doctor about the fatty change and level of fibrosis in your liver. It will help your doctor stage the level of fibrosis that your liver has.

Pros and cons of

FibroScan

Pros

-The Fibroscan is a very safe procedure. Unlike the liver biopsy which involves an invasive approach.

- Preparation for this test is quite simple; there is no need for the patient to abstain from consuming food or liquids. It can be conducted immediately, and can provide insight into the status of the liver within just one session.

-The Fibroscan takes approximately 8-10 minutes and is highly accurate. Results can be obtained immediately after the scan and there are no complications. These tests can be done as many times as required without risk of negative side effects, patients are not required to spend the night at the hospital and may return home right after.  

-The Fibroscan is not expensive when compared to the Liver Biopsy.  

Cons

-The Fibroscan is unable to diagnose tumors or cancer in the liver and may not be used on patients with a BMI of more than 28 kg/m2.

- It is unsuitable for pregnant women and patients with ascites (fluid in the abdominal cavity).  -It is also unsuitable for patients with a pacemaker, implants, heart patients, cancer in its latter stages, and certain other medical limitations.
