Why is a FibroScan done?

When other tests indicate that your liver may not be working properly, a doctor may want to do a FibroScan to more accurately understand your liver’s health status.

A Fibroscan helps:

  • Ascertain the amount of fat harbored within your liver
  • Gauge the extent of fibrosis and/or cirrhosis (scarring)
  • Allows you to pre-screen for future clinical trials in NASH or NASLD, if desired

Who would benefit from a FibroScan?

Any patient with one or more of the following risk factors is at a greater risk for developing fatty liver disease. Fatty liver disease does not have symptoms.

How do you prepare for a FibroScan?

To have a FibroScan you will not be able to eat or drink anything for 3 hours before the test. You may not have a FibroScan exam if you have any of the following:

  • an implanted electrical device, such as a pacemaker or defibrillator, or
  • patients with insulin pumps may have a FibroScan as long as the electronic part is removed before the exam
  • if you are pregnant

How is a FibroScan performed?

FibroScan is a simple, painless exam that involves you lying on your back with your right arm raised behind your head. The technician will apply a water-based gel to your skin on the right side of your body at the rib cage and apply a probe with slight pressure.  Ten consecutive measurements are taken at the same location, concluding the exam.

What happens after a FibroScan is done?

After the exam, you may go back to your normal activities immediately. There is no downtime or recovery period needed after a FibroScan. A study investigator or physician will interpret the FibroScan report and review the results with you.
