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.
