fibroscan limits


in many posts i have suggested fibroscan for detection of liver damage but i have forgot to mention that it is not accurate when alt/ast are elevated (more than 200-300iu/ml), in case of high alt flares it is necessary to wait 6-12months after they get back to normal

ultrasound is also good to detect severe liver damage/cirrhosis when alt/ast are elevated
