G’morning. I’m hoping Robert can help me understand my question. I’ll try to keep it short as I have to get ready for work. Diagnosed a year ago, Internist ordered abd ultrasound. He said all normal “picture perfect”. GI orders fibroscan & score was 8.4. He said evidence of mild fibrosis. My confusion is how in the hell can the ultrasound be so perfect but yet fibroscan showed mild fibrosis??? I thought ultrasound showed portal veins, liver texture consistency, blood flow & any scar tissue, if any. I have also asked my GI’s NP if I will have periodic ultrasounds & she said no. GI also said he doesn’t do many biopsies anymore, that he prefers fibroscan. NP says if I want true staging I should have biopsy. Conflicting info. I’m up in the air to say the least.
