Biopsy involves an invasive procedure that is usually carried out in a hospital. A large hollow needle is pierced through the skin to the liver to extract a sliver of liver to be examined under a microscope. It generally requires a stay of several hours in the hospital for observation purpose.
Fibroscan is a non-invasive procedure, usually carried out in a doctor's office using the Fibroscan machine. A probe is placed on the skin around the liver to take 10 measurements. It takes a few minutes.

More information can easily be found online, just Google the terms.
