For an expert answer ask your doctor we here are a community of patients.

Here is a link to a fibroscan score card.

http://hepatitiscnewdrugs.blogspot.com/p/fibroscan-scoring-card-understanding.html

Interpretations very depending on the cause of fibrosis whether it is due to Hepatitis B or C, NAFLD, chronic heavy alcohol use or other causes.

But per the score card a score of 24 would indicate liver cirrhosis no matter what is the underlying cause.

You should discuss your fibroscan result with your doctor who ordered your test am am assuming you are seeing a hepatologist.

I am a patient who had hep c for 37 years and was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis in Jan 2008. I am not a medical worker of any kind.
