Hi, I have a few posts on this board and I have a question regarding if I should go for Fibroscan or not. I live in the US and have had a blood test come back with mildly elevated bilirubin and mildly elevated direct bilirubin. All other blood measurements were within range. I also had an ultrasound done for "peace of mind" and the Dr. said that there is no abnormalities. However, I have seen that ultrasound is not particularly effective for determining liver disease and am sitting here wondering if I should still go in for a fibroscan just to make sure. I am still kind of 'on edge' about having liver issues and am wondering if there is any value beyond ultrasound results to having a fibroscan. Some comments would be appreciated, thank you!
