fibroscan vs liver biopsy
Friends..

i have had long months behind me..
My question ofcourse.
i have had mild AFP elevations so i went threw some series of tests.
The results are listed below
The fibroscan shows i have cirrhosis... the liver biopsy taken 1 month after the fibro scan shows no liver damage.
And according to my specialist i am just a carrier without hep activity.
My dear friend stef helped me and i thank him.
The reason of this post is has any one else experienced such reading with liver biopsys? and what came out of it.
What is reliable? should i get a second opinion. or just leave it be. Pls i am anctious about your experiences..



results:
Us; normal
Mri: normal
fibroscan: 16.6 kpa( he stated that this correlaties with F3 fibrosis).
liver biopsy ; F0 no fibrosis found, no iron, no fatty liver, no viral replication in the liver.
No replications:
Gilberts syndrome: i a non dangerous syndrome that causes high bilirubine levels
Status non active.

you have to translate to english

of course check only from europe about fibroscan because US, canada and UK dont have t or have so few that the experince with it is nul

germany, french, italy and spain have fibroscans (in italy every hospital with liver disease department) so most of research and experince is in these countries

check also your bmi in the studies and response of fibroscan because i think it is reliable in the range to bmi 27-28 maximum
