The Fibroscan device works by measuring shear wave velocity. In this procedure, a 50-MHz wave is passed into the liver from a little transducer on the finish of a ultrasound probe. The probe additionally has a transducer on the end that can measure the velocity of the shear wave (in meters per second) as this wave passes through the liver.
The shear wave velocity would then be able to be converted into liver solidness, which is communicated in kilo pascals. Basically, the technology measures the velocity of the sound wave passing through the liver and after that converts that measurement into a liver solidness measurement; the whole procedure is regularly referred to as liver ultrasonographic elastography.
The best technique for diagnosing of cirrhosis was liver biopsy which is obtrusive, as well as exorbitant and related with confusions. We now have a novel system, the fibroscan, which permits noninvasive evaluation of liver solidness (fibrosis and cirrhosis), thus, blocking the requirement for liver biopsy.
In addition to evaluation of liver fibrosis, the fibroscan likewise quantitates the measure of fat in liver. The strategy is less expensive and non-obtrusive, as well as faster and similarly precise as liver biopsy in diagnosis. It likewise helps in observing the progression or regression of liver disease, accordingly enabling treatment to be customized to individual needs.
Fibroscan innovation, for diagnosis of liver disease is currently available at VGM Gastro Centre and gives quick, non-intrusive and painless measurement of liver health. It is helpful in patients with fatty liver keeping in mind the end goal to recognize those with fibrosis who have dynamic infection. It is additionally valuable for evaluation of fibrosis and cirrhosis of liver due to any cause.
