Y. Yilmaz – SSM and FS 630

Measurements of spleen stiffness using the FibroScan® Expert 630 equipped with the new SSM module may allow identifying esophageal varices with a high risk of bleeding. Additionally, the concomitant measurements of both hepatic and splenic stiffness can distinguish between varices caused by cirrhosis from those due to portal hypertension in the absence of cirrhosis.
