I had the liver biopsy 2 moth ego which came positive (early PBC).Can I run MRI also?

To see how much damage is there?e

Can any body explains this to me 21 portal areas 3 needles core biopsies ...there is 2-3 steatosis with steatonecrosis. The portal areas show mild and moderate chronic active hepatitis . There is no evidence of cholestasis. The individual liver parenchyma cells show cells dropout and acellular nuclei showing no stainable iron on iron stain with appropriate control. Trichromatic stain with appropriate control shows septal and bringing fibrosis (early cirrhosis) I will appreciate any info...regars

Yes your dr. could do an MRI, or Ultrasound and tell more about the size of the liver, and about the fibrosis, (scarring or thickening ) of the liver. Don't worry too much about that report, they put in every detail. A lot of these things are in mine, and says I did have cholangitis, portal fibrosis, and ductular proliferation. And this was 10 yrs ago, and in fact my bile numbers are less now. I've just taken the ursodiol for 10 yrs, and still there's been no big change.
