Measuring liver damage from Hepatitis C virus

Patients who live with viral hepatitis might not have any noticeable health problems for years. However, as the years progress, scarring in the liver can build up and slowly lead to liver failure. Once that stage is reached, the patient will need a liver transplant.

With the new FibroScan technology it is now easy to measure the health of the liver and see how much scarring the hepatitis virus has caused. Knowing the stage of fibrosis can help a patient decide if they need to start a treatment plan immediately.
