Fibroscan

Hi all
I live in midwestern US. I want to share information about Fibroscan. Fibroscan is recently approved in US by FDA. I found that St. Louis University has obtained the fibroscan machine and has made it available for clinical practice since 15 th July 2013. I had fibroscan done there yesterday. You can contact SLU Care liver center to schedule an appointment at 314 577 6000. You will need authorization from ur primary care physician or from your GI.

I don't know for sure but it is said that UCSD in San Diego, CA, has an MRE machines which is like similar to fibroscan but MRI based.

Maybe Djxpress  can tell us more about it..

I think maybe it is better to contact the manufacturer directly and ask him for a list of clinics that may have it...
