Fibroscan:
Fibroscan® (transient elastography) is a non-invasive method of assessing liver fibrosis based  on the measurement of liver stiffness. The technique uses an ultrasound transducer probe to determine the speed  of a shear wave emitted from a transducer probe directed towards the liver. The velocity of this wave is  proportional to the density, stiffness or degree of fibrosis in the liver.
