Liver elastography is a non-invasive test your healthcare provider can use this to learn about your liver’s health. Non-invasive means nothing is put inside your body.
FibroScan is a type of liver elastography. FibroScan is a special ultrasound technology that measures liver stiffness (hardness) and fatty changes in your liver. These measurements help your healthcare provider learn more about your liver disease.
Here are some helpful terms to know related to your FibroScan results:
Fibrosis (fy-BROH-sis): Scarring in your liver.
Liver stiffness: Hardness of the liver related to liver scarring.
Fatty change: An abnormal buildup of fat in your liver.
Steatosis (STEE-uh-toh-sis): A condition caused by having too much fat in your liver.
CAP score: The way the percentage of fatty change in your liver is measured.
Fibrosis and steatosis are measured separately from one another. Your healthcare provider will talk with you about your results during your appointment.
