Fatty Liver NASH (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis)
Fatty Liver/NASH (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis) occurs when there is a build-up of too much fat in the liver, accompanied by inflammation and damage.

WHAT IS A FIBROSCAN?
Examination with FibroScan is a non-invasive way to measure the stiffness of your liver. FibroScan works by emitting a small pulse of energy, which may feel as a slight vibration on your skin. It then calculates the speed of this energy to give your healthcare provider an immediate measure of the stiffness of your liver.
The FibroScan examination is painless, quick and easy. Find out now if you have Fatty Liver NASH (non-alcoholic steatohepatitis).
