fibroscan
does anyone know where to get a fibroscan in the US.  I heard this is a good alternative to a liver biopsy which I hear is very painful.   Also, do you know the criteria for getting a fibroscan?  
thanks - any help would be great for my friend.

Generally liver biopsies are not at all painful. I have had a bunch of them and none were any big deal.
I believe there is a Fibroscan in LA.

Good luck,
Mike

I agree w/Mike.  Biopsy was painless - not even a drop of blood.  The Fibroscan (direct) offer is a great one though - and much cheaper than a biopsy -
