FibroScan® probes

Optimize measurement accuracy on all patient morphologies

Choose the appropriated probe between S+, M+ or XL+.


Optimize measurement accuracy

FibroScan® offers a range of 3 probes (S+, M+ and XL+) designed to fit patient morphology.  

By adjusting the measurement area relative to the distance between the probe and the liver (Probe to Capsula Distance) a consistent explored volume can be maintained.
