FibroScan® probes

Because each patient has a different morphology, choose the appropriated FibroScan® S+, M+ or XL+ probe to get the best FibroScan® performance.


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.

For M+ and XL+ probes, FibroScan® automatically recommends the right probe.

PCD: Probe to Capsula Distance

With new SmartExam, the maximum PCD is 45 mm representing an increase of 28% to extend usage among severely obese patients with deeper assessment of liver fibrosis and steatosis.

FibroScan® comes with the standard FibroScan® M+ probe.

FibroScan® S+ and FibroScan® XL+ probes are available as an option.

What our users say


The obese population that we receive for FibroScan® examinations has increased substantially in recent years. CAP™ has become essential to our prescribers to precisely monitor patient’s steatosis. SmartExam allows us to address difficult patients and to provide reliable results to our prescribers.
