LiverScan Clinical Data
LiverScan procedures are easy to put into routine practice for all chronic liver diseases.
- To date, more than 369 peer reviewed original articles have demonstrated the usefulness of liver stiffness measurement with the LiverScan.
- As a stand-alone tool or as an adjunct to liver biopsy, LiverScan allows accurate decisions as part of your patient management strategy.
- From mass screening to follow-up of post transplanted patients and prognostic.
- LiverScan uses “shear waves” to measure the elasticity of the liver using an improved technique called Vibration-Controlled Transient Elastography (VCTE™).
WHY A LiverScan?
Liver disease, like diabetes, is a silent killer.
But unlike diabetes, most people don’t know about liver disease. There are many diseases that can cause gradual fibrosis of the liver and develop into cirrhosis. Chronic liver diseases affect the liver tissue in various ways: fibrosis and steatosis. The diagnosis and monitoring of chronic hepatic pathologies depend on clinical examinations, biological explorations, histology based on biopsy puncture, and non-invasive imaging examinations such as ultrasound and pulse elastography.
The LiverScan test of the liver has offered a great opportunity to both replace biopsy but also to track responses to treatment in a way that biopsy could not be used. Using the LiverScan machine, we can now provide this test to all patients who have or had chronic conditions of the liver including those patients who previously underwent treatment.
