Checking the health of your liver

HCA UK Nurse meeting patient

FibroScan® is the brand name of a revolutionary ultrasound scan that measures scar tissue (fibrosis) in the liver. Also called transient elastography, it is used to diagnose and monitor liver disease. It is a quick, non-invasive, low risk, highly accurate and can be repeated over time.

Despite patients needing to fast prior to having the scan (four hours is recommended), no anaesthetics is needed with patients being able to continue their day immediately after the test.

As the largest organ in the body, your liver is essential to your well being. As well as purifying blood of bacteria, digestive products and alcohol or drugs, your liver carries out more than 500 functions to keep you healthy and alive.

According to Public Health England, liver disease accounts for approximately 8,500 deaths per year in England. Factors such as the rise in obesity, contributing to the increase of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and the premature deaths associated with alcohol related liver disease (around 4,000 per year), means looking after your liver is very important.

Checking the health of your liver at an early stage will help in treating any conditions that may present. Typically treatment involves changing your daily routine, or introducing lifestyle changes which will help resolve problems before they become too serious and irreparable.

Screening costs £420 (as of Jan 2018) and this package includes:

  • screening tests, which can take place on a day suited to your schedule with a clinical nurse specialist
  • results are given in the form of a letter (within 48 hrs) by a hepatologists/liver specialist and also sent to your GP if requested.
