A Fibroscan, also known as vibration controlled transient elastography, is a non-invasive test of your liver that is similar to an ultrasound. It allows your liver specialist to obtain important information about your liver health within 5-10 minutes.
A fibroscan helps:
- determine how much fat is stored in the liver
- determine the degree of fibrosis and/or cirrhosis.
South Texas Research Institute (STRI) is offering FREE fibroscans for adults. Based on results, research studies may be an option. Compensation may also be available for qualified participants. Schedule your exam today to find out!
