Experience and quality matter in FibroScan®.
Fibroscan® is currently internationally one of the primary recommended methods of assessment and provides both an assessment of liver stiffness and a controlled attenuation parameter for the assessment of steatosis (CAP) required for identification/assessment and monitoring of many liver conditions including Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD), Non Alcoholic Steatosis Hepatitis (NASH) independently and in association with other liver related conditions. CAP also enables enhanced screening and patient selection.
FibroScan® and AST (FAST) is highly predictive of active NASH (Newsome et al 2020) and the best performing non-invasive assessment of this condition. It can reduce screen failure rates and improve the identification of those who require liver biopsy. FibroScan® has the lowest rate of indeterminate diagnosis (J Boursier et al 2020), with a high threshold for the identification of early fibrosis when performed by skilled operators. The opportunity to reduce your indeterminate zone to 20%.
At Tawazun Health we have the experience and capability to ensure the running of your clinical trial recruitment, operates smoothly with experts performing the FibroScan® you need.
