Reviews for Physicians
and Health Care Professionals

Examination with the Fibroscan 502 Touch medical device is a new non-invasive test that uses shear wave technology to measure hepatic fibrosis.

After many years of waiting, this test is now available for US patients with chronic Hepatitis B and C and other forms of liver disease. This device was approved by FDA in April 2013 and now the 2014 European and US Guidelines for Hepatitis C management do/will soon recommend Fibroscan as an alternative to liver biopsy.


Our office has used Fibroscan successfully in HCV clinical trials involving over 150 research subjects over the past year, thereby providing the first access to approved FibroScan in LA County.
