The Bobbie and Marvin Fink Family Liver Clinic clinic is equipped with cutting-edge technology, including FibroScan®, an FDA-approved noninvasive tool used to assess different stages of liver disease. The scan uses transient elastography (measured in kPa) to assess the stiffness of the liver and determine the amount of fibrosis, and results are immediate. The scan is painless, quick, and easy. Patients will only feel a slight vibration on the skin at the tip of the probe. This new technology has replaced the need for a liver biopsy to assess the stage of liver disease; however, a physician still may recommend a biopsy to determine the cause of liver disease.
