Liverscan focuses on human liver fibrosis diagnosis and staging. It applies non-invasive medical ultrasound imaging technology and transient elastography (TE) technique to directly quantify the stiffness of liver and confirm stage of fibrosis. Liverscan has also streamlined the product size and device connectivity which supports more cost effective and simpler medical examination for liver fibrosis cases.
Currently, liver biopsy is a gold standard for liver fibrosis diagnosis, but it is invasive and may cause bleeding and serious complications. Therefore, Liverscan is developed to perform fibrosis evaluation through non-invasive measurement of liver stiffness and to provide a safer, more effective and comprehensive diagnostic solution for liver fibrosis assessment.
