Guided VCTE™

Seamless liver health assessment for all

As a leader in liver health, we have elevated our core liver elastography technology to the next level with the introduction of Guided VCTE™ – our Next-Generation FibroScan® technology.


Faster examinations with improved guidance


Guided VCTE™ indicators

Two new visual indicators allow operators to quickly identify
the optimal measurement location.1

Computed by a continuous vibration of the probe transducer,
these indicators intuitively guide the operator throughout the entire
duration of the exam.


Time savings for all adult patient morphologies

With Guided VCTE™, 96% of patients can be scanned in less than 4 minutes,
including patients with BMI>30.1

Simplified scanning for a strengthened user experience

AutoScan: New efficiency feature

Based on the Guided VCTE™ indicators, AutoScan automatically triggers
10 valid measurements through a single click, enabling streamlined scanning
and a likely improved operator experience.

Guided VCTE™ includes all SmartExam features

Improved reliability in the diagnosis and monitoring of steatosis
with Continuous CAP™ to decrease variability by 50%.2

Extended usage among patients with severe obesity with deeper
assessment of liver fibrosis and steatosis as the maximum probe-to-capsula
distance is increased by 28%*.

Automated features such as CAP™ validity criteria and automatic measurement
depth selection to adapt to patient’s morphology.


What our users say

Guided VCTE™ is endorsed by healthcare professionals


Guided VCTE™ helps improve operator efficiency and perhaps standardize their performance. We expect that Guided VCTE™ features will improve the reliability of LSM without prolonging the study duration, even in patients with MASLD.

The addition of Guided VCTE™ to SmartExam represents another major advancement in liver diagnostic technology, offering enhanced quality and consistency in examination with a FibroScan® system. This innovation has the potential to streamline diagnostic workflows, and strengthen confidence in liver health assessments.

One of the standout benefits of the Guided VCTE™ enhancement is the improved quality and consistency of the FibroScan® results obtained. By incorporating Guided VCTE™, as healthcare providers we can achieve more accurate and reliable assessments of liver stiffness, leading to improved diagnostic outcomes for patients. This is particularly important in the context of liver health and disease, as early detection and accurate monitoring are essential for optimal patient care.

Products in the FibroScan® range are Class IIa medical devices as defined by Directive 93/42/EEC (EC 0459) and are manufactured by Echosens™. These devices are designed for use in a medical practice in order to measure liver stiffness and ultrasound attenuation in patients with liver disease. Examinations with FibroScan® device shall be performed by an operator who has been certified by the manufacturer or its approved local representative. Operators are expressly recommended to carefully read the instructions given in the user manual and on the labelling of these products. Check cost defrayal conditions with paying bodies. 
The Guided VCTE™ technology is only available on the latest FibroScan® systems and can be used only with M+ and XL+ probes.
