Honestly, I can’t imagine my life without a FibroScan® now. I don’t know how we practiced without it. It has really changed my workup of a patient. In some cases, it’s become more important, to me, than an endoscopy. It has improved our entire practice in the sense that I feel more comfortable knowing which patients we need to worry about, which patients require frequent re-calls and so forth.

FibroScan® Indications for Use
The FibroScan® Family of Products (models: Compact 530, Mini+ 430 and Expert 630) is intended to provide shear wave speed measurements and estimates of tissue stiffness as well as ultrasound coefficient of attenuation (CAP: Controlled Attenuation Parameter) in internal structures of the body. The Shear wave speed and stiffness measurements may be used as an aid to clinical management of adult patients with liver disease. The FibroScan® 630 is indicated for non-invasive measurement in the liver of 50 Hz shear wave speed and estimates of stiffness as well as determining a 3.5 MHz ultrasound coefficient of attenuation (CAP: Controlled Attenuation Parameter). The shear wave speed and stiffness, and CAP may be used as an aid to diagnosis and monitoring of adult patients with liver disease, as part of an overall assessment of the liver. Shear wave speed and stiffness, and CAP* may be used as an aid in the clinical management of pediatric patients with liver disease. FibroScan® 630 (Expert) is also indicated for noninvasive measurement in the spleen of 100 Hz shear wave speed and estimates of stiffness that may be used as an aid to diagnosis, monitoring and clinical management of adult patients with liver disease, as part of an overall assessment of the liver.
* CAP for pediatric patients with liver disease is only available with SmartExam capability.
FAST and Interpretation Guide are Non-Device CDS (Clinical Decision Support) that meet all parts of the 4 sections 520(o)(1)(E) criteria.
