FibroScan at Ruane Medical

A FibroScan® test is a quick (15-30-minute), non-invasive examination. 

The test measures liver health and provides a painless measurement of the amount fibrosis (scarring) in the liver. Using the new Controlled Atenuation Parameter (CAP) our FibroScan also measures the amount of fat in the liver.

FibroScan® is a new medical device in the United States (approved by the FDA on April 5th 2013) that provides a painless and reliable alternative to liver biopsy. Our office is the first one in Los Angeles to offer the test to patients with the FibroScan® 502 device.

A FibroScan examination might be needed if you have any of the following conditions:

  • Fatty liver disease (non alcoholic fatty liver disease - NAFLD, NASH)
  • Virus infections, such as Hepatitis B or Hepatitis C
  • Alcohol related liver disease
  • Other types of chronic liver disease
