Fibroscan in SF - any hospitals or clinics offering?

Just curious where I can get a Fibroscan. I did a search online but didn't anything.  This is for SF area.

There are none at UCSF. Biopsy is the standard for measuring liver disease in the gastroenterology and liver transplant clinics as far as I know.

The only other option I imagine would be the one other liver transplant program in Northern California, CPMC -California Pacific Medical Center.
The Liver Disease and Transplant Program at California Pacific Medical Center 415-600-1020.

Good luck.

When I asked my hepatologist at Stanford whether they offer fibroscans he said no, but they offer MRI elastography. It sounds like it is a similar process, if not the same thing.
