Elastrography

Elastography is a radiology test that is completed at the same time as an abdominal ultrasound. This is performed when evaluating liver stiffness (fibrosis) for staging liver disease. Chronic liver disease is a prevalent problem and can be related to diet, lifestyle and/or substance abuse. This non-invasive imaging technology is proven to be reliable, consistent and reproducible in evaluating the degree of liver fibrosis.
