FibroScan

The Consistent, Painless Approach to Liver Management

FibroScan

Gastroenterology Associates of Western Michigan, also known as West Michigan Clinical Research Center, is the first private practice in Michigan to offer FibroScan.

West Michigan Clinical Research Center and Gastroenterology Associates of Western Michigan now offer FibroScan®, an accurate, non-invasive, painless aid for managing patients with liver disease. FibroScan is FDA-approved for clinical management of patients with liver disease and is covered by most insurance carriers.

FibroScan works by emitting a pulse of energy, which you may feel as a slight vibration on your skin. FibroScan then measures the speed of this energy and immediately provides this information to your physician, who then uses it as part of a broader evaluation of your liver health.
Fibroscan offers many benefits:

  • Consistent results
  • The examined area is 100x the size of a needle biopsy
  • Covered by most insurance plans
  • The procedure is painless and takes about 10 minutes
